We develop innovative strategies so that the Australian primary care workforce can meet the sexual and reproductive health needs of women in Australia. 

Below are projects that may be of interest to primary care providers who are committed to improving the quality and delivery of sexual and reproductive health services to women in Australia.

The AusCAPPS Network

The Australian Contraception and Abortion Primary Care Practitioner Support Network (AusCAPPS) improves equitable access to long-acting reversible contraception (LARC) and early medical abortion (EMA) services in primary care. To support the expansion of best-practice service delivery across Australia, the AusCAPPS Network connects EMA and LARC providers through peer-networking opportunities and access to resources and training.

Is it feasible to use general practice patient records to identify high-risk women for preconception care?

Preconception care is about enhancing the health of women and pregnancy outcomes by managing risk factors that can lead to adverse pregnancy outcomes.
