*NEW* Title X Staff Training Toolkit 
[instant download]

Our latest toolkit outlines the two different ways the RHNTC supports Title X agencies to create, implement, and track the completion of their—and/or their networks'—training plans. Staff working in Title X-funded projects are expected to receive training on select topics either annually or once per project period. Having a training plan can be useful to ensure that staff stay up-to-date on their skills and also receive professional development, and having a structure for tracking staff training can help ensure that Title X projects meet this expectation. Explore the toolkit.

Reducing Maternal Mortality from Intimate Partner Violence and Substance Use Webinar
Wednesday, April 26, at 3–4pm ET

Homicide, suicide, and drug overdoses—all of which are strongly tied to intimate partner violence (IPV)—account for a large number of deaths during pregnancy. Therefore, addressing family planning clients’ relationships, mental health, and substance use is an essential part of providing quality reproductive health care. This webinar will review how IPV, substance use, and maternal mortality intersect, and provide recommendations for how family planning agencies can help prevent IPV- and substance use-related maternal deaths.

This session will be facilitated by Rebecca Levenson, MA, a former Planned Parenthood clinic director and Senior Health Policy Consultant for FUTURES Without Violence. Register for the webinar.
