Siobhan Dolan, MD, MPH, will present a grand rounds webinar on how family health history is applied in the prenatal care setting. Her talk will a) briefly review the tools that providers may use to collect information and the red flags to look for in prenatal practice; b) discuss current management guidelines that are applied when conducting genetic risk assessment in the prenatal setting; and c) review a series of interactive case studies demonstrating the utility of family history in improving maternal and child health outcomes. Although targeted for primary prenatal providers, including obstetricians, nurse midwives, family medicine providers, and others, all are welcomed to join. The presentation supports the professional educational goals of a larger HRSA-funded project, Family History For Prenatal Providers [link], to develop a novel family health history tool primary care providers can share with patients during the first prenatal visit.
