August RRM Journal Club: Sympathomimetics: A novel approach to dysmenorrhea, infertility, and miscarriage

11th August 2020 @ 8:00 PM - 9:00 PM BST

RRM Journal Club: Sympathomimetics: A novel approach to dysmenorrhea, infertility, and miscarriage

Presented by: Ashley Jensen, RN, CNM.

 

This month we review the article: Sympathomimetic amines are a safe, highly effective therapy for several female chronic disorders that do not respond well to conventional therapy", which looks at the use of dextroamphetamine sulfate in the treatment of a number of female chronic disorders, including pelvic pain, headaches, IBD, chronic fatigue syndrome, and urticaria.

Journal Club sessions provide a critical appraisal of published research relevant to the field of Restorative Reproductive Medicine. These sessions are designed to increase providers’ competence to critically evaluate research by increasing their knowledge of the scientific method, research design, and common biases. Improvements in knowledge and competence will translate into improvements in clinician performance as they use their understanding of research to provide better care and communication to their patients and apply the results from research to clinical practise.

This session is approved for 1.0 Prescribed credit by the American Academy of Family Physicians (AAFP).*  For more information about how how this can be reported and submitted to other organizations please see the AAFP website here.

 

Webinars are free for all IIRRM members.

Ashley Jensen, CNM, RN, BSN

Ashley is currently employed by the University of Utah in the Department of Family and Preventative Medicine. Working with Dr. Joseph Stanford, they employ a restorative reproductive approach to infertility, miscarriage, and other women’s health issues. She received her certified nurse-midwife degree from Bethel University in Minnesota. In addition, she is a FertilityCare Practitioner for the Creighton Model System and a Creighton Model System nurse-midwife through the American Academy of FertilityCare Professionals.
Having gone through infertility herself, she is well acquainted with the emotional struggle and the Natural Procreate Technology (NaPro) approach to treatment, which ultimately gave her and her husband their now two-year-old daughter, Annalise Joy and baby number 2, expected in just a few weeks. She would like to continue to help women with infertility, making the option of Restorative Reproductive Medicine more accessible and widespread.
