FEB 2021 CCSS: Emerging Priorities in Women’s Health

February 25, 2021

Program Description

The topics covered offer continuing education (CE)/continuing medical education (CME) accredited content to all health care providers and support the full range of military operations in order to sustain the health of all those entrusted to DHA’s medical care. The event will:

• Instruct health care providers on successful implementation of relevant evidence-based and best practice strategies for the health care team.

• Demonstrate how learning new skills will improve overall readiness, health outcomes, and possibly reduce unnecessary costs.

• Engage learners in specific training and case vignettes for the application of acquired skills in instilling the importance of applying improvements in the collaborative team approach, which results in positively impacting patient care.

This event highlights current evidence-based practices, policies, and recommendations and initiatives in women’s health issues including mental health, intimate partner violence (IPV), cardiovascular disease, human papillomavirus (HPV), and COVID-19 in pregnancy and its ethical considerations in women’s health care.

The educational content is created by Subject Matter Experts in the ethical, research, academic and medical domains of the military and civilian health care sectors. The primary focus of this event aims to enhance the quality of patient outcomes and population health by providing advanced continuing education opportunities to improve the practice, skills, and knowledge of health care providers across the Military Health System (MHS).
