Grand Rounds – Preventing Cervical Cancer in the 21st Century
The first CDC Public Health Grand Rounds of 2019 features “Preventing Cervical Cancer in the 21st Century.” Each year more than 4,000 U.S. women die from cervical cancer, the fourth most common cancer in women worldwide. The Grand Rounds will highlight future screening and vaccination efforts across the country and what has been done at the local level to prevent cervical cancer.

New Opioid Use and Pregnancy Module added to CDC’s Guideline for Prescribing Opioids Series
The new module uses clinical scenarios and feedback prompts to help providers gain a better understanding of opioid prescribing considerations in pregnancy, patient-centered communication techniques, and approaches to improve provider-patient collaboration for safer opioid prescribing.
