Unintended pregnancy is a major public health problem in the United States. Unintended pregnancy usually is the result of failure to use contraception or inconsistent or incorrect use of effective contraceptive methods. Long-acting reversible contraceptives (LARCs) are the most effective and consistently used contraceptives. This two-part series addresses guidelines that encourage the use of LARCs because of the high efficacy, safety, and ease of use.
This activity was planned to meet the educational needs of physicians, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, and pharmacists caring for patients interested in contraceptive options.
At the conclusion of this application-based educational activity, participants should be able to:
Compare and contrast properties of available LARCs
Using patient scenarios, choose the most appropriate LARC option by considering patient-specific factors
Discuss ways to assist patients in navigating the variations in institutional access to LARCs
