Emergency Contraception: Who, What, When, Why & How- Free CEU for Pharmacists

er contraEmergency Contraception: Clinical Aspects and Patient Care
In recent years, several over-the-counter emergency contraception products have entered the market. These include Plan B and other levonorgestrel-based generic alternatives. No longer are these products dispensed by pharmacists, nor are they subject to age restrictions, counseling requirements, and certain other guidelines that were imposed when Plan B was first approved. Yet, there is significant confusion, as well as misunderstanding and anxiety, among pharmacists as well as consumers regarding how emergency contraception works, when it can be effectively dispensed and used, and who can use it. It is essential that pharmacy professionals be able to consistently and authoritatively counsel patients about OTC emergency contraception products – regardless of whether the product is available OTC, behind-the-counter, or in a locked display. This CE activity provides pharmacists a thorough review of how these products are used, who may purchase them, and how they and their patients can obtain additional needed i nformation.
List the currently available emergency contraception (EC) products and their OTC status.
Describe the mechanism of action and adverse effects of EC products.
Describe how patients obtain EC products, including age restrictions and specific state restrictions.
Outline counseling points for patients taking EC products – instructions for use, side effects, and implications.
Explain the specific FDA requirements and practice guidelines that govern the sale of EC products.

Causes, Characteristics & Imaging of Atypical Femoral Fracture- Free ARRT CEU for Rad Techs

femoral fxEmerging Concepts in Atypical Femoral Fracture- Causes, Characteristics, and Imaging– Although there is strong evidence that bisphosphonates prevent certain types of osteoporotic fractures, there are concerns that these medications may be associated with rare atypical femoral fractures (AFF).
Since many physicians including radiologists are not aware of this entity, the incidence is likely underreported. These fractures usually occur in the subtrochanteric and mid-diaphyseal regions of the femur in the setting of low-energy trauma. Awareness of these atypical fractures and their radiological appearance should enable their early and accurate detection and thus lead to specific management.
This lecture will review current research on atypical femoral fractures, followed by case studies that focus on early radiological appearance for accurate detection of changes associated with the spectrum of AFF using plain film, DXA, and CT.
Discuss the potential relationship between long-term bisphosphonate (BP) therapy and atypical femoral fracture (AFF).
Recognize the radiographic features that distinguish AFFs from ordinary osteoporotic femoral fracture.
Use appropriate imaging techniques, including the use of plain film, dual-energy x-ray absorptiometry (DXA) and CT, for identifying early radiographic signs of AFF.
