    The Medicine Couch 

    "What is it really like working in Obstetrics and Gynecology as a PA or NP? Who can deliver babies? How has the current state of reproductive rights affected the specialty since Roe v. Wade has been overturned? In the video, I interview PA Melissa Rodriguez, president of the Association of Physician Associates in Obstetrics and Gynecology (APAOG). We discuss hours, pay, and duties in OB/GYN, what she loves and doesn't love about OB/GYN, what procedures PAs/NPs can do, and which APPs can work in Labor & Deliver. If you want a behind the scenes look at this specialty, then this video is for you!" - Michele Cambron, PA-C

    APAOG is a partner of the ACOG Maternal Immunization Task Force and we are excited to continue to engage with you to advance maternal immunization rates in the U.S.

    During the 2022 virtual Maternal Immunization Summit, we were provided an opportunity to share and discuss impactful strategies and activities related to maternal immunization, vaccine confidence, COVID-19 vaccination among pregnant individuals, and routine immunization.

    To keep the conversation going and to continue to stay connected, the Task Force will be piloting a quarterly newsletter “Maternal Immunization Resources” in August in support of National Immunization Awareness Month (NIAM). This newsletter will serve as a great opportunity for organizations to share updates on upcoming research, resources, and events related to maternal immunization.

    With that in mind, we welcome APAOG members and others to share any new maternal immunization items from your organization for inclusion in the first newsletter! Please email us!

    The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommend routine screening for hepatitis C virus in pregnancy. Recently published data in Obstetrics & Gynecology indicate that less than half of all pregnant individuals are screened for hepatitis C. In a nationwide effort, ACOG is reaching out to partner organizations, such as APAOG, to raise awareness about hepatitis C screening in pregnancy.

    Hepatitis C screening in pregnancy is recommended to identify individuals with hepatitis C infection and infants who should receive testing at a pediatric visit. Hepatitis C screening during pregnancy should be an opportunity to promote a dialogue between pregnant individuals and their clinicians about hepatitis C transmission and risk factors.

    In addition to clinical guidance, patients may access Frequently Asked Questions “Hepatitis B and Hepatitis C in Pregnancy,” “Protecting Yourself Against Hepatitis B and Hepatitis C,” and “Routine Tests During Pregnancy” for additional information.

    Partners are encouraged to disseminate materials in an effort to increase screening in pregnancy. Please let me know if you have any questions. Thank you in advance for work related to hepatitis C screening in pregnancy.
