Best Practices for Reporting Medical and Health Information on Birth Certificates

Naphsis and vital statistics agencies across the country have collaborated to create an online course to increase knowledge and awareness of the importance and best practices for reporting birth certificate and report of fetal death information.

The course is geared toward physicians, nurses, and non-clinical staff at hospitals and birth centers responsible for completing the medical and health information for the certificate of live birth and report of fetal death.

After completing the course, individuals have the option to print a certificate of completion or earn continuing education credits.

To access the course, visit the CDC website now.
