Women in rural communities are often challenged in their ability to access abortion services. Offering service within the patient’s community avoids unnecessary travel for patients to larger centres and keeps care as close to home as possible. While surgical abortion services may remain difficult to access, new medications like mefipristone, make providing medical abortion services for rural and remote patients much easier.
The Ontario College of Family Physician’s (OCFP) Collaborative Mentoring Networks presents a one-hour interactive webinar to review practical approaches to support clinicians who see the need to provide medical termination of pregnancy services in their rural and remote communities.
Webinar presenters, Dr. Nichole Currie and Dr. Sarah Gower will share practical strategies to support you and your colleagues providing of this service in your community.
Who: Family physicians and primary care providers who either are, or see a need, to provide medical termination of pregnancy services in rural and remote environments.
When: December 12 from 12:30- 1:30PM EST
