Reproductive Health Care: Conversations for Clinicians and Their Patients
The average American woman becomes sexually active at age 17 and wants two children. She will spend approximately 4 years of her sexually active reproductive life either pregnant or trying to get pregnant, and 25+ years trying to avoid pregnancy. This activity is anchored by a series of 'real world' cases. The curriculum will enhance your comfort, confidence, and competency in counseling patients on reproductive health life planning. The case-based curriculum focuses on the better conversations you can have. You'll walk through visits with five patients as you and the patients decide together the best path forward for their reproductive health choices.
At the conclusion of this activity, participants should be able to:
- Normalize discussions about sex in the primary care setting
- Recognize the diversity in patient needs and preferences around reproduction and contraception
- Provide patient-centered counseling
- Use evidence-based guidelines while prescribing contraceptives
