This on-demand webinar provides a review of California minor consent and confidentiality laws and how to balance the laws with teen friendly services and best practices. It provides practical techniques on how to implement patient-centered confidential services for teens that honor mandated reporting of abuse laws. Strategies for addressing parent concerns and providing inclusive sexual health counseling designed to meet the needs of ALL teens, regardless of gender identity, sexual orientation and sexual practices are also discussed.

Foster youth face significant barriers to seeking quality sexual and reproductive health care and report that the process can sometimes feel stressful and traumatic. Providers have shared the need for enhanced clarity regarding how laws regarding consent, confidentiality and mandated reporting may differ for youth in care.

This online course covers communication basics for providing LGBTQ-inclusive care. It includes evolving terminology, an overview of inclusive sexual history-taking and the importance of asking sexual orientation and gender identity (SOGI) data of all patients.

The CDC estimates that there are 20 million new cases of sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) in the United States each year. STD infection rates are significantly and disproportionately higher among youth, racial/ethnic minorities and sexual minorities. Differences in infection rates among vulnerable populations cannot be fully explained by differences in individual risk behaviors.

This course was developed to enhance the capacity of providers and members of health teams to address and identify intimate partner violence (IPV), reproductive coercion and human trafficking. The first module reviews trauma-informed approaches that address both the needs of providers and the patients they serve. It includes examples of practical applications, stock phrases, and questions that providers can use in patient interactions about IPV.

Human trafficking is all around us, but what are the signs? This on-demand webinar will enhance the capacity of clinic staff and providers to identify and support patients that are being trafficked, or may be at high risk. You will also learn best practices for integrating trauma-informed approaches into their practice to best address the health care needs of trafficking survivors and other victims of violence.

Approaches to fertility awareness-based methods (FABMs) have evolved over the decades, from the calendar rhythm method to sophisticated apps that factor-in multiple fertility signals. While patient education on the use of these methods usually is performed by counseling staff, clinicians must be aware of their scientific basis, differences among the various methods, and their efficacy rates.
