Adolescent Reproductive Health in Primary Care

Series meets on Thursdays (weekly) from 7:00 - 8:00 AM MT


This series offers clinically relevant topics for primary care providers who provide or are looking to build, expand, and improve care to preteens through young adults. Once completed, participants will be able to evaluate and manage common conditions in adolescent reproductive health. Over the course of six sessions, the series will include an overview of adolescent reproductive health issues, best practices in adolescent contraception and common adolescent gynecology concerns.

Pre- and Post-Test: This series will include a pre- and post-test that will be used to understand its effectiveness. The tests will be sent by ECHO Colorado's Evaluation team and will take less than five minutes to complete.

CE for this series has been applied for and is pending approval. ECHO participants typically earn one credit per session attended.

This series will not meet on Thursday, November 23, 2023 (Thanksgiving Day).


By the end of the series, participants should be able to:

1. Identify one aspect of their practice that can be changed to improve an adolescent patient’s access to confidential care.
2. Apply their knowledge of long-acting reversible contraception (mechanisms of action, benefits, side effects) in the context of patient-centered contraceptive counseling.
3. Apply the U.S. Medical Eligibility Criteria (USMEC) to determine if a contraceptive method is safe for a patient to use given her medical conditions.
4. Determine if a patient’s menstrual history represents a normal, or abnormal, menstrual bleeding pattern.
5. Recommend four or more contraceptive methods that can be prescribed for non-contraceptive indications.
