Abstract

The purpose of this article is to, first, describe the content of a folic acid professional education intervention that was developed and implemented as a result of a collaborative effort between an academic institution and a nonprofit organization—the Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, chapter of the March of Dimes—and the process by which it was developed; second, report the results of an evaluation of the impact of this intervention on knowledge and recommendation behaviors of health care providers; and third, discuss the implications for professional practice and continuing education. We developed a novel presentation that had practical utility for practitioners that could be implemented in either a classroom or continuing education setting.
