*NEW* Telehealth Services: Taking an Inclusive, Equity-Driven, and Trauma-Informed Approach Job Aid

While telehealth services have increased for many family planning clients, it is essential that historically marginalized and underserved clients have access to these services. This job aid outlines six strategies to communicate about telehealth services more effectively with your clients. Each strategy includes action steps that incorporate the principles of inclusion and equity, while also taking a trauma-informed approach into account. Download the job aid.

The Establishing and Providing Effective Referrals for Clients Toolkit includes sample policies and strategies to support Title X agencies’ ability to provide high-quality, supportive, and effective referrals. The toolkit was recently updated to align with the Title X Final Rule, and includes the Nondirective Counseling and Referral Sample Policy Template, which can be modified with agency or site-specific information. Explore the toolkit.

Moving Beyond Screening for IPV: Understanding the CUES Intervention Webinar
Thursday, August 18 at 3–4pm ET

Looking for ways to strengthen your agency’s intimate partner violence (IPV) prevention and intervention approach? Join us for a webinar providing an overview of CUES (Confidentiality, Universal Education and Empowerment, and Support), an effective, evidence-based IPV intervention. CUES fosters prevention and intervention and is easy to practice; includes universal education for all clients about healthy relationships; and does not rely on disclosure for clients to receive resources and support (including referrals if requested). Participants will also learn safe planning strategies for people experiencing IPV, along with how to collaborate with local IPV programs.

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.

The What and Why of Systems Mapping for TPP Programs Webinar
Tuesday, August 23 at 3–4pm ET

Looking for a practical way to apply systems thinking to your TPP program? Systems mapping is a helpful tool you can use to visualize your program’s system in order to better understand its strengths and opportunities for improvement. In this webinar, TPP program staff will learn more about what a systems map is and how to use this tool to support program planning and implementation. They will also hear from a TPP program peer about how systems mapping (and receiving technical assistance on this topic) helped shape their program. Finally, participants will practice creating a systems map in small groups. Register for the webinar.

Leveraging Financial Data: Office Hours for Title X Grantees
Wednesday, September 7 at 3–4pm ET

Are you a Title X grantee wondering how to use the financial data you already collect to support your network? By taking a strategic approach to analyzing the data that subrecipients provide, grantees can identify opportunities to support subrecipients in improving their financial practices, provide meaningful technical assistance, and strengthen Title X project management. Join us for our final office hours session that will review the financial data that grantees collect, describe how grantees can use it for their own and their subrecipients’ benefit, and provide concrete examples. Debbie Sullivan, a health care consultant and former Title X grantee chief operating officer, will share relevant resources and tools. Register for the office hours.

This session is available only to Title X grantee staff (specifically project managers and/or finance team members or managers).
