Resources for Healthcare Providers

Advancing Reproductive Health

Healthcare providers are in a unique position to offer accurate, timely information to vulnerable adolescents in a confidential setting. Research shows that teens value the time you spend with them and the unique counsel you offer. 

Teens are more likely to consider more effective methods of birth control, like long acting reversible contraception, when they have evidence-based information that comes from an authority figure, like you. In addition, minor changes to your office environment, such as signs that stress doctor/patient confidentiality, can have an disproportionately large effect on younger patients.

Contraceptive Choice Counseling

Research shows that when overloaded with information, patients, especially teens, may use poor strategies to make decisions. A direct approach of talking to the adolescent patient has been shown to work better than other methods that provide too little or too much information.

Motivational Interviewing for Healthcare Professionals

Motivational interviewing techniques support autonomy and allow young people to take charge of their own health and well-being by collaborating with their health care provider to find the best solution.
