Mifegymiso is Here!

From SOGC (Nov 10, 2017):

“Mifegymiso was approved for use in Canada in January 2017. It is a combination of two drugs, mifepristone and misoprostol, and is used for the safe medical termination of early pregnancy. The Mifegymiso pill provides an important alternative to a surgical procedure for women, particularly for those who are unable to access abortion services in their area. We believe today’s announcement will improve access to the drug to women across the country.”

Are you up to date on emergency contraceptive options?

Are you up-to-date on emergency contraception options?

UBC CPD has launched a new online module that outlines and compares the effectiveness of various oral EC agents and Cu-IUDs, and includes interactive case studies to help you counsel patients about EC options. This self-paced, 75-minute, interactive, mobile-friendly, and accredited online module is available free through UBC CPD eLearning.

ARNBC supports Communities of Practice

This community of practice website and support for the volunteer leadership group is from ARNBC.  We are able to have teleconference and online meetings regularly and be able to post updates and administer this small website because of ARNBC.  Without the ARNBC, the Contraceptive Management Community of Practice would have great difficulty carrying out it’s volunteer activities without significant cost.  We would probably not exist.  Where would you find local practice support and updates for this area of practice?

If you appreciate having the contraceptive management practice updates, being able to contact provincial leaders in the field and knowing that fellow nurses are involved in practice support, please consider voicing your concerns about the current happenings that threaten ARNBC.  We are stronger when we work together.

See the recent video post from ARNBC about the 3rd court challenge launched against them from BCNU.
