  • Overview

    Pharmacists are often the "go to" healthcare provider for patients when they have questions about their contraceptive. Pharmacists should be well-equipped to screen for contraceptive use or pregnancy planning, answer questions about which contraceptive may be best given a specific patient history, when to start and continue a contraceptive appropriately to ensure adherence, how to manage side effects, and the various reasons contraceptives may be used. This webinar will guide the pharmacist through patient cases to demonstrate how common contraceptive questions can be answered and provide tools for effective communication with patients.
