Interested hospital-affiliated clinicians are invited to participate in one or more free, CME-credit-bearing webinars sponsored by Partners in Contraceptive Choice and Knowledge (PICCK). PICCK is the state-funded clinical and public health program designed to promote contraceptive choice and effective contraceptive counseling in Massachusetts.
Enacted in partnership with the state’s birth hospitals, the PICCK program provides education, training, and technical assistance to expand and sustain the capacity of hospitals statewide to provide contraceptive access. MHA supports this multi-year program, which launched in early 2019 and is housed at Boston Medical Center/Boston University School of Medicine.
PICCK is currently offering medical professionals a series of webinars on a variety of contraception-related topics. All webinars are free and offer CME credits. They run from now through May. The program’s next webinar is entitled, “What’s New in Contraception,” and will take place on Thursday, February 13, from noon to 1 p.m. Click here for a complete listing of all available PICCK webinars, as well as registration information.
In addition to the webinars and an annual meeting open to healthcare providers, Massachusetts hospitals and their affiliated practices and health centers are invited to partner with PICCK to receive a customized program that meets their facility’s needs. PICCK offers medical practices provider education and technical assistance related to workflow, billing, and materials.
