This online course covers communication basics for providing LGBTQ-inclusive care. It includes evolving terminology, an overview of inclusive sexual history-taking and the importance of asking sexual orientation and gender identity (SOGI) data of all patients.

The CDC estimates that there are 20 million new cases of sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) in the United States each year. STD infection rates are significantly and disproportionately higher among youth, racial/ethnic minorities and sexual minorities. Differences in infection rates among vulnerable populations cannot be fully explained by differences in individual risk behaviors.

Long-acting reversible contraception (LARC) methods currently available in the United States include the implant (Nexplanon) and intrauterine devices (ParaGard, Mirena, Skyla, Liletta and Kyleena). LARCs are the most effective methods of birth control available today. They are extremely safe, easy to place and can prevent pregnancy for 3 to 12 years. They are recommended as the first-line choice of contraception for teens and adult women by the American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the American Academy of Pediatrics.

This course was developed to enhance the capacity of providers and members of health teams to address and identify intimate partner violence (IPV), reproductive coercion and human trafficking. The first module reviews trauma-informed approaches that address both the needs of providers and the patients they serve. It includes examples of practical applications, stock phrases, and questions that providers can use in patient interactions about IPV.

Human trafficking is all around us, but what are the signs? This on-demand webinar will enhance the capacity of clinic staff and providers to identify and support patients that are being trafficked, or may be at high risk. You will also learn best practices for integrating trauma-informed approaches into their practice to best address the health care needs of trafficking survivors and other victims of violence.

Approaches to fertility awareness-based methods (FABMs) have evolved over the decades, from the calendar rhythm method to sophisticated apps that factor-in multiple fertility signals. While patient education on the use of these methods usually is performed by counseling staff, clinicians must be aware of their scientific basis, differences among the various methods, and their efficacy rates.
