About the Series

For many staff it can be challenging to address the range of potential health needs a client may have during a given clinic visit.  With the Providing Quality Family Planning Recommendations (QFP), we now have clear and evidence-informed guidance on how to:

  • Determine a client's need for a range of services and their reproductive life plan
  • Provide counseling on contraception, pregnancy testing, achieving pregnancy and basic infertility, sexually transmitted infections, preconception health, related preventive health and referrals

This six-part training opportunity will help you put the QFP recommendations into practice.
