Podcasts are a popular, easy- listening format for experts to share views, host conversations with other experts, and impart knowledge. They are similar to radio broadcasts, consisting of downloadable audio files, and are generally part of a themed series. The CTC-SRH’s podcasts are aimed at sexual and reproductive health clinicians and other staff members who are looking for current and easily digested segments of information that can be accessed from both computers and mobile devices.

The CTC-SRH produces regular podcast episodes on a variety of topics, such as preventing congenital syphilis or basic infertility services. Our podcast, Clinical Chats, is the overarching name for all our episodes, and it encompasses several sub-series, including Reproductive Justice, Addressing Pregnancy-Associated Deaths, and Coding with Ann.

The CTC-SRH’s podcast was formerly called The Family Planning Files and is now known as Clinical Chats: A Podcast for Sexual and Reproductive Health Care Providers, or just Clinical Chats for short. This new podcast name has been changed to align with our new program’s name, which now includes the term ‘sexual and reproductive health’ instead of ‘family planning.’

New episodes are shaped by current educational needs in the field, emerging health trends and issues, new technologies, and guidance from our Grantee Clinical Leadership Advisory Council. The variety of topics ensures there is an episode of interest for anyone, and the experts featured come from a variety of backgrounds and places in the US.

One to two podcast episodes are released every month and can be found on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Google Podcasts, Stitcher, and other major streaming platforms for easy on-the-go listening. All the podcast episodes can also be streamed directly from our website.

Latest Clinical Chat Podcasts

All Podcasts

‘Clinical Chats’ is the overarching name for all our podcasts, and it encompasses our two podcast sub-series ‘Coding with Ann’ and ‘Reproductive Justice.’

Clinical Chats focuses on interviews with a variety of subject matter experts in the realm of sexual and reproductive health services, in order to deliver the latest news and guidance to Title X clinicians and other staff. While some podcasts are more clinically focused than others, there are a number of episodes of Clinical Chats that are useful to anyone who works in Title X or other sexual and reproductive healthcare settings, including administrators, medical assistants, and health educators.

Discussing the 2021 Title X Final Rule

The NCTCFP speaks with Jessica Swafford Marcella, MPA, the Deputy Assistant Secretary, Office of Population Affairs and Director of the Office of Adolescent Health, to discuss the new Title X Final Rule, which went into effect on November 8th, 2021, including changes to options counseling and telehealth services.

In October 2021, HHS published the Title X Final Rule “Ensuring Access to Equitable, Affordable, Client-Centered, Quality Family Planning Services.”

The 2021 final rule revokes the 2019 final rule, “Compliance With Statutory Program Integrity Requirements”, in its entirety and readopts the 2000 final rule, “Standards of Compliance for Abortion-Related Services in Family Planning Services Projects” with revisions to ensure access to equitable, affordable, client-centered, quality family planning services for all clients, especially for low-income clients. This document, published by the Office of Population Affairs, provides a summary of essential provisions within the 2021 rule.

Addressing Pregnancy-Associated Deaths

All Addressing Pregnancy-Associated Deaths Podcasts
Pregnancy-associated deaths, those not directly related to obstetric causes, make up the majority of maternal mortalities in the US, and while Title X clinicians do not provide prenatal care, they can still address pregnancy-associated death in their practices in other ways. The podcasts in this series discuss the most common causes of pregnancy-associated death in the US, and provide guidance on the ways in which Title X services and providers can impact and prevent them.

Coding With Ann Podcasts

All Coding With Ann Podcasts

Coding with Ann is the CTC-SRH’s ongoing podcast series on billing, coding, and reimbursement for anyone involved in revenue cycle management in Title X or other sexual and reproductive health settings. Episodes feature Ann Finn, of Ann Finn Consulting, LLC, a nationally-known expert in medical billing and coding who has worked with many sexual and reproductive health organizations over the years.

Reproductive Justice Podcasts

All Reproductive Justice Podcasts

The CTC-SRH is committed to supporting Title X grantees, sub-recipients, and service sites in providing sexual and reproductive care that is high quality, equitable, and accessible. To do so, we have created this podcast series that focuses on reproductive justice and how clinicians can apply this framework to their clinical practice. 

The CTC-SRH aligns with Sister Song’s definition of reproductive justice as the right to maintain bodily autonomy, to have or not have offspring, and the ability to parent those offspring in safe environments. These podcasts are aimed at anyone who works in sexual and reproductive care, especially in patient-facing roles, such as clinicians, health educators, or clinical support staff.
