NAF's Clinical Services department provides individualized resources for NAF members. The Clinical Services department responds to member requests for educational resources on a case-by-case basis and covers topics included in the Clinical Policy Guidelines (CPGs) as well as systems analysis, patient care approaches, patient flow, customer service, administration, marketing, and management solutions.

NAF's Clinical Services department uses the CPGs to provide a basis for ongoing quality assurance, help reduce unnecessary care and costs, provide ongoing medical education and encourage research. NAF's CPGs allow for individual practitioner choices, patient care concerns, and provide a baseline of quality abortion care.

Clinical Policy Guidelines

NAF's Clinical Policy Guidelines (CPGs), the only evidence-based guidelines for abortion practice in North America, provide a basis for ongoing quality assurance in abortion care. The guidelines are developed based on rigorous review of the relevant medical literature and known patient outcomes. More
