These case studies are useful in showcasing opportunities to strengthen an organization's commitment to equity, implementing harm reduction practices, & collaborating with other support services.

The Intersection of SUD and Family Planning Care

People who use substances have high unmet needs for accessing sexual and reproductive health care. Healthcare settings are implementing a variety of strategies to meet the needs of people who use drugs, including screening and brief intervention, de-stigmatizing substance use disorder and addressing a range of behaviors from a harm reduction perspective. This activity aims to assist clinical services providers with understanding the problems people who use drugs face in accessing sexual and reproductive health care and to explain harm reduction and implementation in health care settings.

At the completion of this activity, participants should be able to:

  1. Describe unmet sexual and reproductive health needs of people with substance use disorder.
  2. Discuss strategies for enhanced, client-centered care for people with substance use disorder.
  3. List at least three harm reduction principles for healthcare settings.

1.0 continuing education credits (CNE) are available for this activity. To obtain continuing education credits, participants must register and successfully pass a quiz for this activity. For further information and/or to register, visit www.HealthEKnowledge.org.
