Featured On-Demand Programs 

Recorded Contraceptive Compass: A Journey To Personalized Protection

Family planning and contraceptive care have recently been debated within the state of Alabama . The Supreme Court of Alabama's February ruling that cryogenic IVF embryos be recognized as children and entitled to legal protection has resulted in bills proposing civil and criminal immunity for IVF facilities (S 159) and protecting access to contraceptive care (HB 279). Although Alabama state law does not specifically grant pharmacists authority to prescribe contraception, HB 279 (introduced in March) lists pharmacists as healthcare providers who can "legally dispense or provide information on marketed contraceptives." If this bill is passed, it will provide increased awareness of pharmacists providing contraceptive counseling. In order to be prepared, pharmacists will need to be familiar with the various contraceptives available and be prepared to provide counseling pearls and recommendations for new contraceptive therapies including over-the-counter progestin-only pill, prescription progestin-only pill, patch, ring, vaginal gel, and intrauterine devices. This presentation will focus on updates in contraceptive therapies and ways to recommend appropriate treatment to mitigate various side effects.
