Although modern emergency contraception was first introduced to the US market more than 20 years ago, many physicians still feel uncomfortable incorporating EC provision into their routine care of reproductively aged people. In this session Dr. Ghazaleh Moayedi, a Board Certified OB/GYN and Complex Family Planning Subspecialist, will review evidence-based guidelines for the provision of emergency contraception and empower physicians to incorporate emergency contraception provision into their primary care practices.

Upon completion of this program, participants will be able to:

  1. Understand what emergency contraception is and why it is used
  2. Review different types of EC and their mechanisms of action
  3. Discuss timing, use, and contraindications to EC
  4. Recommend strategies for contraception initiation after EC and incorporating EC provision into a primary care practice
