Dual Protection: A Symposium on Preventing Pregnancy and STIs




Wednesday, December 12, 2018

Registration: 8:00 am CT

Symposium: 8:30 am CT


Registration open through 12/7/2018 10:59 PM.


Dual protection describes when someone simultaneously uses condoms to reduce the risk of STI exposure and a contraceptive method to reduce the likelihood of pregnancy. STIs and unintended pregnancy are at record highs, so this timely symposium will allow participants to learn about up-to-date standards of care and evidence-based practices to address these public health issues.



Symposium topics include, among others:

  • Contraceptive update
  • Trauma informed care
  • STI testing and treatment
  • Nurse only services
  • Billing and coding
  • Partner notification
