Youth-friendly postabortion care supplemental training module

In 2006, the Youth-Friendly Task Force published technical guidance on youth-friendly postabortion care (YFPAC) with recommendations to improve the quality of and access to PAC services for adolescents. To complement the technical guidance on YFPAC and support the implementation of YFPAC, the PAC Consortium has developed this supplemental training module to train health care providers to provide YFPAC services to adolescents.

At the end of the two-day supplemental training, participants will be able to: 1) Describe the period of adolescence; 2) Establish YFPAC services; 3) Provide adolescents with PAC care and treatment that take into consideration their unique needs; 4) Explain and provide contraceptive options to adolescent PAC clients; and 5) Demonstrate appropriate, nonjudgmental, and comprehensive counseling of adolescent PAC clients, including contraceptive counseling and referrals

Resources included:

  • Training manual
  • Trainer’s tools
  • Participant handouts
  • Supplemental training module PowerPoint slides (in PDF format)
