Overview

The Fundamentals of Family Planning is designed to provide all levels of staff working in diverse settings with best practices for providing evidence-based, quality contraceptive education and counseling services. The latest edition features new content based on up-to-date research and current sexual and reproductive health national guidelines. It focuses on birth control methods, reproductive anatomy, sexual concerns, and sexually transmitted infections (STIs), as well as best practices in patient education, motivational interviewing techniques, and obtaining informed consent.

The Fundamentals of Family Planning is a "self-study" manual that will help new and experienced health care workers and educators:
  1. Develop skills for providing effective, patient-centered contraceptive counseling in any setting;
  2. Learn up-to-date sexual health information and sample language to share with patients, clients or students;
  3. Explain contraceptive options to patients using easy-to-understand teaching methods and tools;
  4. Implement the Quality Family Planning (QFP) Recommendations published by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Office of Population Affairs (OPA)


The Fundamentals of Family Planning can also be a resource for those wanting to become certified Family Planning Health Worker (FPHW). More information about certification training options can be found at www.essentialaccess.org.

About the Author

About Essential Access Health
Mission: Essential Access Health champions and promotes quality sexual + reproductive health care for all
We achieve our mission through a wide range of programs and services including clinic support initiatives, provider trainings, advanced clinical research, advocacy + consumer awareness. Essential Access leads the Title X federal family planning program in California and Hawai'i.

Advancing Sexual + Reproductive Health Access and Equity
Essential Access was established in 1968, grounded in the belief that the ability to plan our families and futures and make informed, autonomous choices about our sexual and reproductive health are essential for overall health and well-being. More than fifty years later, our 2021 – 2024 Strategic Framework builds upon our long-standing commitment to making access to high quality, comprehensive sexual and reproductive health services and information a reality for everyone – regardless of income, race, age, gender identity or sexual orientation, zip code, insurance or documentation status.

Although we have made significant progress over the past five decades, systemic and structural barriers continue to perpetuate and contribute to unequal health access, resulting in disproportionate health disparities among disenfranchised communities, and Black, Indigenous, and other People of Color. We recognize that in order to truly advance our mission, we must address the root causes of sexual and reproductive health disparities head-on. Our Principles of Equity + Roadmap for Action provides an overview of the meaningful steps we will take to help ensure that the future of sexual and reproductive health care is more inclusive, just, and equitable.
