About the Webinar
This webinar will introduce participants to a newly-developed online resource devoted to promoting reproductive health care for women with disabilities.  This interactive recorded program, "Reproductive Health Care for Women with Disabilities," was developed through a partnership between the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and is designed to be an easily navigable source of information to assist clinicians providing care to women with physical, developmental, and sensory disabilities.  The webinar will conclude with a question and answer period. 

Topics covered in the full online program will be outlined for webinar participants, and include:

  • Scope and prevalence of disability in women
  • Sexuality
  • Substance use and other psychosocial issues
  • The gynecological examination and routine health screening
  • Contraception, pregnancy, adolescent health, and aging
  • Reciprocal influences of specific disabilities on reproductive health
  • Making facilities accessible and other ADA requirements
  • Disability culture and sensitivity
  • Additional resources for clinicians
