Learning Objectives:
Women with complex medical conditions often pose a dilemma when it comes to what type of contraception they can use. On one hand, they are the most likely to put their health in danger with an unintended pregnancy. On the other hand, some contraceptives are often medically contraindicated, depending upon their medical condition(s). This session will be a case-based, interactive discussion that will give the learners a framework and clinical tool for how to assess which medical conditions raise the risks of using certain contraceptives and which conditions pose no risks. We will also coach learners on how to use the CDC’s Medical Eligibility for Contraceptive Use App. This session will delineate medical factors that can complicate contraception options while balancing patient-centered preferences and evidence-based guidelines.
 
Objectives for Discussion:
1. Describe the influence of age (younger and older), obesity, smoking status, and other co-morbid conditions on contraceptive risks.
2. Understand which medical conditions are additive with each other when it comes to interacting with estrogen containing contraceptives.
3. Become confident in using the CDC Medical Eligibility for Contraceptive Use App when addressing interactions.

Learning Objectives:
Point of Care Ultrasound (POCUS) is becoming increasingly popular and some say may become the standard in the future; however, there remains barriers to entry for many family doctors. One of which is simply learning about the various benefits to implementing it in practice and taking the first steps. Often informal discussion with friends and colleagues can provide guidance, direction for taking the first steps to implementation as well as logistics to overcoming financial and administrative burdens that may stand in the way. Furthermore, these informal gatherings can help those using POCUS to share skills, knowledge and expand their abilities to maintain a full scope family medicine practice while providing additional benefit to patient and doctor. Lastly, simply connecting likeminded doctors with similar interest builds community and connections that may lead to collaboration and further individual and collective family medicine tools and skills to better serve our patients.
 
Objectives for Discussion
1. Learn about different ways Family Doctors are using POCUS in practice.
2. Informally share ideas, best practices and expand knowledge.
3. Network and meet new people.

Learning Objectives:
Point of Care Ultrasound (POCUS) is becoming increasingly popular and some say may become the standard in the future; however, there remains barriers to entry for many family doctors. One of which is simply learning about the various benefits to implementing it in practice and taking the first steps. Often informal discussion with friends and colleagues can provide guidance, direction for taking the first steps to implementation as well as logistics to overcoming financial and administrative burdens that may stand in the way. Furthermore, these informal gatherings can help those using POCUS to share skills, knowledge and expand their abilities to maintain a full scope family medicine practice while providing additional benefit to patient and doctor. Lastly, simply connecting likeminded doctors with similar interest builds community and connections that may lead to collaboration and further individual and collective family medicine tools and skills to better serve our patients.
 
Objectives for Discussion:
1. Learn about different ways Family Doctors are using POCUS in practice.
2. Informally share ideas, best practices and expand knowledge.
3. Network and meet new people.

Learning Objectives:
Stories reflect experiences. As physicians we have patient stories – these stories tell us more about our patients and their lives and serve as example and potential teaching tools. Our experiences teach us not to repeat unintentional mistakes, but if captured and shared, they can also teach others not to make them at all. We have used narratives from our clinical practices to develop a teaching tool to increase competencies in various levels of inter-professional provider learning groups. This knowledge allows the learners to understand, interpret and empathize with human actions.
 
Objectives for Discussion:
1. To use provider-patient experiences in understanding provide-patient dynamics and thus improving patient care.
2. Allowing providers to discuss inter-professional provider-patient relationships and review team dynamics.
3. Understand the "unspoken word", cultural barriers and patient behaviors.

Learning Objectives:
In the United States, almost half of all pregnancies are unintended. Thus, the chief compliant of “positive pregnancy test” is a common presentation for many primary care providers. It is important for primary care providers to understand that not all positive pregnancy test are “good news” for patients. For the best patient care, clinicians must provide supported and medically appropriate counseling on all options for unintended pregnancy. These include continuing the pregnancy and parent, make an adoption plan, or terminate the pregnancy with medication or procedure abortion. Regardless of a provider’s personal beliefs about abortion, the ACGME requires that family medicine residents demonstrate proficiency in options counseling. This educational session will give learners tips to discuss positive pregnancy results in a patient-centered and unbiased manner. It will also help learners understand and explain standard protocols for adoption, medication and procedure abortion. Case based discussions will assist participants in applying the skills they learned during this session.
 
Objectives for Discussion:
1. Describe the epidemiology of unintended pregnancy in the United States.
2. Discuss positive pregnancy test results in a patient-centered/unbiased manner and demonstrate appropriate options counseling.
3. Understand and explain standard protocols for adoption, medication and procedure abortion.

Stories reflect experiences. As physicians we have patient stories – these stories tell us more about our patients and their lives and serve as example and potential teaching tools. Our experiences teach us not to repeat unintentional mistakes, but if captured and shared, they can also teach others not to make them at all. We have used narratives from our clinical practices to develop a teaching tool to increase competencies in various levels of inter-professional provider learning groups. This knowledge allows the learners to understand, interpret and empathize with human actions.
