Description

The Healthy North Carolina 2030 State Health Improvement Plan (SHIP) has identified teen birth rates as health behaviors target for improvement. Pharmacists can play a critical role in health access especially in rural areas. To assist with this goal, the North Carolina General Assembly has passed, and Governor Cooper has signed into law, legislation that authorizes qualified immunizing pharmacists to dispense self-administered oral or transdermal contraceptives after the patient completes an assessment consistent with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's United States Medical Eligibility Criteria (US MEC) for Contraceptive Use.

This knowledge-based CPE activity will provide pharmacists with education on contraceptive options available in the US, including an overview of hormonal and non-hormonal methods. Additionally, this session will review resources available to support safe use and prescribing of these agents in clinical practice.
