Webinar: Supporting Women at a Critical Time - Managing Early Pregnancy Loss in your Community Health Center


Presented by: Rebecca Simons, MD, MPH, Medical Director, Family Planning Program, Community Health Center of Buffalo, and Carrie Pierce, MD, Reproductive Health Fellow, The Institute for Family Health.

Each year in the United States, approximately 1 in 6 pregnancies end in miscarriage. Though common, miscarriage can be a difficult time for women. Community health centers are well-suited to provide emotional support, continuity of care, and office-based, patient-centered clinical management to women experiencing early pregnancy loss.

This webinar is designed for health center clinicians and administrative staff. The workshop will introduce the three treatment options available to managing early pregnancy loss. By working through interactive cases, participants at many learning levels will become more comfortable thinking about complications of early pregnancy. The cases will cover the work up and diagnosis of miscarriage, using algorithms and evidence-based recommendations for work-up. Terminology surrounding miscarriage, as well as current diagnostic criteria will be reviewed. Online tools, clinical guides and training resources for providing miscarriage care in a primary care setting will be shared with all participants.
