Educational Needs Addressed
Adolescents and young adults with cancer have unique reproductive health needs. While providers often counsel patients with cancer to avoid pregnancy during treatment, providers infrequently offer contraception counseling in this context. This webinar will discuss the contraceptive needs among this population, common misconceptions about perceived fertility and sexual activity, and clinical considerations for use of contraception among various cancer types.
Participants at the conclusion of this webinar will be able to:
- Describe contraceptive needs among adolescents and young adults with cancer
- Identify common misconceptions among providers and patients undergoing treatment about fertility potential and pregnancy risk
- Understand clinical considerations for use of different contraceptive methods among various cancer types common in this age group
