I’ve made a few videos about contraceptive counseling, specifically IUD, Nexplanon and oral contraceptives, but this week I want to focus on the approach to the contraceptive counseling conversation with patients.
Family planning is crucial for primary care, and applies to all genders. I see so many providers feeling uncomfortable with these conversations, and hopefully this helps you feel better both bringing up and navigating the conversation.
In this video I cover:
✅ The most important questions to ask to get the answers you’re looking for
✅ The most helpful way to optimize the conversation with your patient to save time
✅ How to avoid the “deer in headlights” look when you’re talking to patients
✅ My favorite resources to guide your conversations
A presentation I reference in the video is here: http://www.ctcfp.org/wp-content/uploads/APPROVED_Cason_Patient-Centered-Reproductive-Goals-and-Contraceptive-Counseling-pc-edits.pdf
And here are two other websites to help with patient reference:
Reproductive access project: https://www.reproductiveaccess.org/resource/bc-fact-sheet/
(FYI: to slow down the audio speed, hit the gear symbol in the bottom right corner and change it to .75x or .5x. Closed captions are also located at the bottom R hand corner of the video.)
My favorite evidence-based, time-saving references & apps to make clinic life easier.
