$0.00 Reproductive health is an important element of the full-spectrum of family medicine and primary care.  The current health care environment in the US has created fear and anxiety for patients and their physicians, prompted by uncertainty about availability of services, coverage for care and access to physicians.  Education and training that build solutions for reproductive health care help to alleviate some of that uncertainty.   This tool assists you in reflecting on your current practices, skills and knowledge related to reproductive health. You will be queried about present and desired skill levels with each of the eight competencies and then asked 2-3 questions that illustrate your skill/knowledge.  Each section of the tool includes the rationale for answers and the reference citation.  You will also be able to see your own assessment scores and where you rank among colleagues; your CME certificate will be available at the end of the course. To learn more about the CME credit or the Conversations initiative go to www.familydocs.org/rhi.
