Collapse Overview 
Collapse description
Reproductive health is an encompassing term used to describe many different topics including but not limited to pregnancy, contraception, sexual relations, infertility, puberty, and monthly periods. Children with rheumatic diseases and their parents have unique reproductive health concerns as it relates to their diseases and medications. There has been very little research on this topic in terms of the concerns and how to address them. Patients and parents might ask their pediatric rheumatologists and nurses about this topic, but health care team members do not have any resources or dedicated training in this area. This study aims to understand and address the needs of these populations as well as current behaviors and create educational tools to address the gaps and needs discovered.
