Upon completion of this workshop, the healthcare professional will be able to:
- Review the most recent consensus paper written on the current opinion for prescribing testosterone for women.
- Discuss that the current opinion for prescribing testosterone for women is only recommended in women that have a confirmed diagnosis of hypoactive sexual desire disorder and only when other treatments have failed.
- Recall the current recommendations do not recommend the use of testosterone for any other reason or indication.
- Discuss that guidelines are only suggestions. If the patient and prescribing doctor determine that testosterone would benefit the patient, there are no contraindications to the use of testosterone.
- Review the concept that any medication can be prescribed for off-label use if there is sufficient scientific support for the safety and efficacy of that medication as there is for testosterone.
