Contraception and abortion
Mondays sessions on contraception and abortion contained many topics and key points I will take back to my work place and will make a difference to the Indigenous communities I work in.
Living in a remote and isolated setting rules out certain options for local people with regard to abortion and family planning options. Learning of the telehealth options that are now available for early abortions gives young women another choice in this regard.
I am interested in the future of this particular model and it's evolving service and how it can benefit those living in these remote settings.
