  • Overview

    Are you ready to apply the latest counseling techniques to address the contraceptive revolution?

    Join nurse practitioners Patty Cason and Joely Pritzker as they briefly review the history of contraceptive counseling and then use case vignettes to illustrate how shared decision-making techniques will support the appropriate use of nonhormonal contraceptive options, such as the vaginal pH modulator (VPM).

    Participating in this activity will ensure that you are ready to effectively counsel patients on their many options so that each patient’s reproductive and sexual health goals can be met.
