Become a Certified One Key Question Provider to Support Women's Reproductive Wellbeing
Are you implementing or considering implementing One Key Question (OKQ) to support your clients' reproductive well-being? Would you like to train others in using OKQ? Good news: Power to Decide wants to offer OKQ certification training at AMCHP's 2019 Annual Conference! Are you interested?
OKQ supports your clients' power to decide by helping to transform their health care experiences. It starts with a simple question to begin a conversation about preconception and/or contraception care. This approach works because it is rooted in clients' needs, preferences, and desires; it equally supports clients who want to become pregnant, those who do not, and those in between. That's why OKQ has been implemented in myriad programs throughout the country, including home visiting; family planning; the Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants, and Children; STI clinics; and federally qualified health centers.
The one-day training costs $350 and provides two-year certification to implement OKQ and makes you eligible for a training of trainers instruction in the future. You do not have to be a clinician to participate. To help Power to Decide and AMCHP gauge interest in OKQ certification training, please complete this survey by Dec. 21.
