Applications are now being accepted for our 2019-2020 Miscarriage Care Initiative. The Miscarriage Care Initiative expands access to evidence-based, patient-centered miscarriage care in primary care settings. Our vision is to support family clinicians and clinic administrators to integrate all three forms of miscarriage management – expectant, medication, and manual vacuum aspiration (MVA) management – into their clinical practice.
Grantees will receive intensive support from RHAP to integrate and expand miscarriage treatment in their primary practice. Each applicant organization will identify a “Clinical Champion,” who will be the primary point of contact and lead program implementation at the practice site. Grantees receive supplies and equipment, patient education materials, and technical assistance to address clinical and administrative issues. Grantees who are clinical faculty also receive support to integrate miscarriage management into their residency education program. The grant period typically ranges from 12-18 months.
To apply, the site must be a primary care setting. RHAP will strive to select a diverse cohort of grantees, both in terms of practice setting (community health centers, private practices, academic practices, etc.) and geographic location (regionally and urban vs. rural). The Clinical Champion should be a board certified or board eligible family physician in the United States. The Clinical Champion, or another project leader, should be trained to competency in offering manual vacuum aspiration (MVA).
