What's New in CPSP

CPSP Provider Trainings

LA County is now opening registration for our 2017 trainings!

Once a month we will be having a training from 8:30am to 4:00pm at the California Endowment in Downtown Los Angeles (conveniently located located one block from Union Station via the Red or Gold Line).

The training will include an overview of the CPSP program for new staff, as well as updates for staff who want to learn about LA County's new forms and current resources.

The training and parking are free!

Registration information for 2017 will be distributed per our CPSP provider email list.

Zika Virus Update

Zika is a mosquito-borne virus. In Brazil, the site of a large ongoing Zika outbreak, there has been a substantial increase in the number of babies born with microcephaly (small head circumference). Please click here for important information for obstetric providers and pregnant women. 

Pertussis (Whooping Cough)

Pertussis is on the rise. We strongly recommend that CPSP providers offer/refer pregnant patients for Tdap during 3rd trimester to protect newborns from pertussis. Visit CPSP website or to learn more about what your office can do to prevent pertussis.
