BEFORE AND BEYOND
The Before and Beyond website was created and is maintained by the Clinical Work Group of the National Preconception Health and Health Care Initiative, a public-private partnership working to advance preconception knowledge and care of all men and women of reproductive age in this country.
Designed to help primary care providers, their colleagues and their practices incorporate preconception health into the routine care of women of childbearing age.
The tool kit helps primary care providers meet their patient’s needs based on the response to this “vital sign” question: “Would you like to become pregnant in the next year?” (The One Key Question Initiative) Her answer will allow you and your colleagues to individualize her primary care to best meet her overall and reproductive health needs.
View the Toolkit here.
The development of the toolkit was supported, in part, by funding from the W.K. Kellogg Foundation, the National Preconception Health and Health Care Initiative, and the Center for Maternal and Infant Health at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. The online CME Modules were developed and are supported in partnership with the Albert Einstein College of Medicine.
