Efforts to expand contraceptive access in the United States over the last decade have predominantly focused on long-acting reversible contraceptive methods. A broader view that focuses on patient-centered access to the broad range of methods can ensure that patients receive the best method for them and that reproductive autonomy is prioritized. This presentation will define a framework that policymakers, program implementers, and researchers can use to consider a broader range of factors that influence equitable access to high-quality, person-centered contraceptive care, including discussing building trust with patients as part of the contraceptive counseling process, and attention to structural and social determinants of health.

Health care professionals play a critical role in empowering people to choose the best method for them, free from coercion. Designed for clinicians, this session will provide information on contraception, including long-acting reversible contraception (LARC), and how to engage patients in these conversations. Strategies for person-centered contraceptive counseling will be discussed and interval and immediate postpartum IUD insertion techniques will be demonstrated.


Panel Discussion: Systems Change for Contraception Access & Equity

Moderator: Meghan Benson, MPH, CHES
Director of Education, Planned Parenthood of Wisconsin, Inc.

To ensure equitable access to contraception, we must create change at multiple levels, including individual provider and policy change. However, individual and policy changes will only go so far to improve contraceptive equity if health care and public health systems present barriers. What about these systems needs to change and why is systems change so challenging? Join us for a panel discussion to explore what systems changes are possible, and strategies for creating these changes.
