Reproductive Health Care

Reproductive health is an important element of the full-spectrum family medicine. CAFP has long-standing policy supporting the full complement of reproductive health services, including availability of insurance coverage for those services, over-the-counter (OTC) access for contraceptive medication, access to Long-Acting Reversible Contraceptives (LARC) and vasectomy, pregnancy termination, as well as education and training.
Pathways in Management: Effectively Addressing Osteoarthritis and Pathways in Management: Chronic Low Back Pain are interactive, case-based activities that highlight current guidelines and describe how to put them into practice. Included are practical tools and resources to support the appropriate care of patients with either osteoarthritis and/or chronic low back pain to improve their quality of life. These activities are part of an interdisciplinary collaboration of CAFP, Interstate Postgraduate Medical Association, Nurse Practitioner Healthcare Foundation, American Academy of Physician Assistants and Healthcare Performance Consulting. In addition to these enduring activities, information on “mini” quality improvement accredited activities are available to learners.
