Updated Interim Zika Clinical Guidance for Reproductive Age Women and Men, Sexual Transmission of Zika, and the U.S. Zika Pregnancy Registry

Overview

As we learn more about how the Zika virus is transmitted, health-care providers need clear guidance to inform discussions with their patients about possible exposure to Zika virus and how to prevent its transmission to developing fetuses and sexual partners. During this COCA Webinar, clinicians will learn about the updated CDC interim guidance for caring for reproductive age women and men with possible Zika exposure, CDC interim guidance for prevention of sexual transmission of Zika, preventing transmission of Zika virus in labor and delivery settings, interpreting pediatric testing guidance, and the US Zika pregnancy registry.
