CME Spotlights

Title:         What to Do to Prevent a Preterm Birth: 17P and Vaginal Progesterone
When:      Through September 2016
Where:     Utah Hospitals
Provider:  UMA Foundation in partnership with the Utah Women and Newborn Quality Collaborative
CME:         1.0 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™

17P is a synthetic form of progesterone that has been shown to reduce the recurrence of preterm birth for women with singleton gestations who have a history of previous preterm birth. Studies show that administering 17P to eligible women reduces the change of having another preterm birth by 33 percent. Unfortunately, only 25 percent of eligible women in Utah received 17P in 2012, even though it is covered by Medicaid.

The Utah Women and Newborn Quality Collaborative (UWNQC) is presenting one hour sessions at various hospitals throughout the state through September. For information on dates and locations, contact juliajohnson@utah.gov.
