This second webinar builds on knowledge gained in the the first session (how to prescribe early medical abortion at your organisation) through an expert panel discussion of Victorian doctors and nurses.
The sessions will increase your knowledge and confidence in early medical abortion provision, including possible complications in patient presentations. The webinar will include case studies of establishing service provision in community health settings and general practice, including rural settings, examples of managing patient issues and post-procedure presentations. It will also touch on perspectives on supporting pregnant migrant and refugee patients, and the topic of reproductive coercion.
The discussion will include a Question-and-Answer component, with opportunity to have your questions answered anonymously. Questions can be submitted through registering for the session or live during the panel.
