    Whether you are a return attendee or brand new to our society we believe this year’s course will provide a new and exciting experience for you to learn about women’s sexual health. We believe this course applies to all women’s healthcare providers, including MD, NPS, PAs, PTs, CNMs, and all types of mental health providers. We welcome trainees and those with decades in their respective fields. We believe this course can contribute to almost any practitioner.

    At last year's course we revamped the schedule from the bottom up and continue to enhance and update the content and the schedule to reflect our dynamic and changing field. We are still including many of the core elements that have made this course so successful, including sections on sexual pain, hormone management, coding and billing. We have also added in new lectures to address the entire sexual response cycle, including treating disorders of arousal and orgasm as well as exciting new updates on treating desire disorders. Furthermore we have added in special lectures on sexual health in obstetrics and general gynecology.

    Our breakout sessions will include opportunities for all participants to practice interviewing patients and apply the knowledge gained throughout this course. Finally we have added on a supplemental course on vulvoscopy. This was based on the overwhelming support we had from past participants and the sold out and successful course in 2017. We are delighted to be the first organization to offer such training.

    ISSWSH continues to be on the cutting edge of research in the diagnosis and treatment of all women’s sexual health concerns. The fall course provides our participants with the tools they need to be advocates and providers in their community. We assure you that you will leave this course more knowledgeable and confident in treating your patients and promoting sexual wellness.

    • March 01, 2019

    The University of Wisconsin-Madison Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, in partnership with the March of Dimes and the Wisconsin Contraceptive Access Network (WI CAN), invites you to join us at a statewide Wisconsin Contraceptive Care Summit on March 1, 2019 in Madison.  A Save-the-Date is attached along with a summary paragraph for your newsletters and publications.  Please help us spread the word!

    Join a diverse group of stakeholders and practitioners to learn about the latest evidence-based strategies in contraceptive care, discuss barriers and how to overcome them, and create partnerships to galvanize statewide efforts to improve equitable access to contraceptive care.  Hands-on skills training will be available for clinicians who wish to learn or strengthen insertion skills with interval IUD placement, immediate post-placental IUD placement, and Nexplanon insertion/removal.

    A keynote address will be delivered by Anu Manchikanti Gómez, Assistant Professor at the School of Social Welfare and Director of the Sexual Health and Reproductive Equity program at the University of California, Berkeley. For more than 15 years, Dr. Gómez has worked as a health equity researcher with a focus on reproduction and sexuality throughout the life course.

    The Wisconsin Contraceptive Care Summit is grounded in the principles of reproductive justice – building a world where everyone has the resources to make healthy decisions about their bodies, sexuality and reproduction.  SisterSong defines reproductive justice as the human right to maintain personal bodily autonomy, have children, not have children and parent the children we have in safe and sustainable communities.  We are guided by these principles.

    The Summit will provide:

    • Capacity building for public health professionals, administrators, health educators, pharmacists, policy makers, researchers, and women’s health advocates
    • Hands-on training in IUD and Nexplanon insertion for clinicians
    • Contraceptive counseling skills development
    • Best practices for contraceptive service provision

    Open to everyone with a passion for ensuring the highest quality contraceptive care possible, including health care providers, educators, administrators, advocates, and activists. Continuing education credit will be available.  Please plan to join us at this inspiring and informative event.  Registration and further details will be available at http://obgyn.wisc.edu/events/WI-ContraceptiveCareSummit.aspx soon.
