Testosterone Deficiency: ISSM Issues Process of Care Press Statement
4th ICSM Recap
On July 6th, the ISSM released the following press statement on the newly-developed Process of Care for the Assessment and Management of Testosterone Deficiency in Adult Men:
There are many misconceptions and unknowns about testosterone deficiency (TD) in the medical community and the general population. A paper recently published in The Journal of Sexual Medicine provides much-needed and up-to-date guidance for the assessment and management of testosterone deficiency in adult males.
Testosterone deficiency may affect the function of many different body systems, and result in significant detriment in quality of life, including alterations in sexual function. Busy physicians and patients need guidance to deal with practical, clinical problems on a day-to-day basis. Available authoritative guidance documents were rather dated and/or targeted at a specialist audience. As such the International Society for Sexual Medicine (ISSM) convened an internationally respected and authoritative professional ‘expert panel’ meeting to develop a new guidance document that is now accessible and relevant to all physicians.

Last month's 4th International Consultation on Sexual Medicine in Madrid was a great success, with over 300 sexual medicine specialists in attendance.
Seventeen committees presented on a variety of topics, including sexual health and illness, orgasmic and ejaculatory disorders in men, and women's sexual pain disorders.
Abstracts and unmoderated posters rounded out the informative scientific program.
More information the meeting can be found here. In addition, all accepted abstracts will be published in The Journal of Sexual Medicine.
