Exploring the Intersection of Climate Change, Pharmaceuticals, and Prescribers in Women's Health

1 credit


Full course description

Despite the increasing recognition of climate change as a significant global health concern, there exists a notable gap in the integration of climate change awareness and education into the training and practice of Women's Health Nurse Practitioners (WHNPs). This gap hinders WHNPs' ability to effectively recognize, and address pregnancy-related complications exacerbated by environmental factors, such as preterm labor and low birth weight, thus underscoring the need for tailored educational interventions to bridge this divide.

Heather Allstrom, MN, RN, is actively involved in climate change research and the development of the Mueller Climate Change Model as part of her pursuit of a Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) degree. With a focus on advancing women's health, she leads this CE program aimed at equipping WHNPs with essential knowledge and skills to address climate change's impact on reproductive health, ultimately enhancing patient care and promoting sustainability.
