CONNECT 2024 | Endometriosis & The Role of The Clinician | Jordan Robertson, ND, NCMP




Cost: Non-members: $97.50 | Member: $52.50 | Student: $22.50

In this seminar, Dr. Jordan Robertson ND and Certified Menopause Practitioner will highlight the current literature to support the integrative and medical management of Endometriosis. The research on endometriosis has shifted over the last decade to focus on neuropathic pain and central sensitization of pain that contributes to the lack of success of most treatment options in this population. In this seminar, Dr. Robertson will draw from her decade long experience working with the Endometriosis Clinic at McMaster Hospital, and her 15 year experience researching the advancements of this condition. The seminar will provide both a review of the medical management and medication options, the mitigation of side effects from the current standards of care and the evidence for an integrative approach for this disease. Participants will understand the process of central sensitization and the current treatment options such as PEA, melatonin and nutrition and how an integrative approach can be combined with medication to provide the greatest outcomes to pain reduction and quality of life.
