Diagnosis and Management of Abnormal Uterine Bleeding

Diagnosing and treating chronic AUB requires a sound understanding of the pathogenesis of AUB. This module explores the PALM-COEIN classification system for abnormal uterine bleeding (AUB), reviews best practices for the diagnosis of AUB and the optimal AUB workup, and describes differential diagnosis of AUB with an emphasis on workup options.

The intended audience for this learning module is advanced practice clinicians in Ob/Gyn or family practice settings.
