U.S. MEDICAL ELIGIBILITY CRITERIA FOR CONTRACEPTIVE USE, 2016

PROGRAM DESCRIPTION: The purpose of this activity is to enhance health care provider knowledge about the US MEC which is an evidence-based source of clinical guidance for the safe use of contraceptive methods by women and men with various characteristics and medical conditions. The goal is for the audience to apply what they learn from the training to their practice as they counsel women, men, and couples about contraceptive method choice. This activity is designed to provide latest evidenced-based information to healthcare providers that would address misconceptions regarding who can safely use contraception, which would remove unnecessary medical barriers, thereby improving access and quality of care in family planning. The activity will cover how the US MEC was developed, how to use the US MEC document, and show how to apply the US MEC in clinical settings. The recommendations presented in this activity remain up-to-date and based on the best available scientific evidence. The presentation and speaker notes can also be used or adapted to give presentations on the US MEC.
