Misoprostol Administration for Pregnancy Termination
(NPWH Activity Number 23-09)
In the event that mifepristone is no longer available for providing medication abortion, clinicians can prescribe misoprostol for both miscarriage management and pregnancy termination. This presentation will discuss the use of misoprostol for pregnancy termination, including dosages and follow up care in the outpatient setting.
