We hear these questions from clinic staff all the time. We know you’re busy and we know you care about providing high quality care.  Through the Converge Connect Person Centered Contraceptive Care virtual course you can learn more about these concepts at a pace that works for you, with content developed by leading experts in sexual and reproductive health care.
