"Abortion is a common experience for women around the world; yet, abortion it is often excluded from the curricula of health professionals." Time to change that!
We quote the announcement of the online course on Coursera.org
Innovating Education in Reproductive Health- a program based within the Bixby Center for Global Reproductive Health in the Department of Obstetrics, Gynecology and Reproductive Sciences at the University of California San Francisco (UCSF) is excited to announce:
Abortion: Quality Care and Public Health Implications, an upcoming course hosted by Coursera.org, an education platform for massive, open, online courses (MOOCs). Abortion is a common experience for women around the world; yet, abortion it is often excluded from the curricula of health professionals.
This free, innovative six-week course is the first Coursera.org course to address abortion care from both clinical and social perspectives. Dr. Jody Steinauer, Associate Professor of Obstetrics, Gynecology & Reproductive Sciences at UCSF, will facilitate the course, which features over twenty faculty (such as Philip Darney from UCSF) and multiple disciplines. The class will address abortion in the U.S. and around the world, framing the issue in a public health context. Our aim is to fill in the gaps left by the exclusion of abortion from mainstream curricula.
Abortion: Quality Care and Public Health Implications will run from October 13- November 24, 2014. In addition to video lectures, there will be expert interviews, quizzes, open-ended writing assignments, and optional additional content. Each week's content will become available at the beginning of the week, and so learners can take the course at any time and can work at their own pace. Learners can watch as little or as much content as they like. This course is geared toward clinicians, health care workers, and students, but the content is relevant to all! There are no prerequisites, and anyone is welcome to take the course.
