New practice resource: Preparing to provide hormonal contraception management
The first resource in our new Sexual and Reproductive Health series is now available. In this video, Nova Scotia pharmacist Colleen MacInnis shares how you can provide hormonal contraception management services in your community pharmacy.
Pharmacists are one of the most accessible and trusted health professionals. The unique position of community pharmacists can further improve access to sexual and reproductive health services by removing practical barriers to obtaining contraception.
- Discuss practical operational tools to prepare your practice setting for provision of hormonal contraception management
- Improve confidence in providing this clinical service to your patients
- Examine resources available for this service for both the pharmacist and the patient
- Identify potential patients and discuss hormonal contraception service options available to them
