Welcome to Protected: Adolescents & Contraception a TeamPeds Talks podcast series brought to you by the National Association of Pediatric Nurse Practitioners (NAPNAP).

Access to contraception and reproductive care is an essential aspect of adolescent-friendly health care services and to preventing teen pregnancy, sexually transmitted infections, and more — yet many teens face significant barriers. This podcast series is a call to action for pediatric focused clinicians who can contribute significantly to increasing access for this important aspect of adolescent health care. The focus of this series is to address multiple aspects of contraceptive care — from confidentiality to various available methods and provide clinical pearls to help improve access for adolescents regardless of setting.

Each guest is most knowledgeable about the laws and policies of their own state and has brought this viewpoint into their conversation. It is important to maintain knowledge of your own local, state, and federal laws that relate to the provision of reproductive health services.

Our host for this series is Alison Moriarty Daley, PhD, APRN, PPCNP-BC, FAAN, an adolescent clinician that spent nearly 30 years providing reproductive care to teens within primary care settings and educating nurse practitioner students to care for this population. 

The idea for this podcast series came from recent work on a collaborative project for NAPNAP that addressed reproductive access for adolescents.  We felt that this series could help provide education to other nurse practitioners to help remove existing barriers and improve clinical care in this area. 

Let’s talk about it!

TeamPeds Talks – Focus on Child and Adolescent Mental Health showcases innovative thought leaders equipping care providers and families for effective responses to mental health concerns.

COVID-19 has dramatically disrupted daily life and social norms for children all over the world. Although children and teens have been largely spared the widespread effects of severe illness and death, pediatric mental health has been dramatically impacted. This seismic global pandemic shift has completely changed the public narrative as families seek information and resources for developmental, behavioral and mental health concerns.
