Women’s Health
Addressing the Contraceptive Needs of U.S. Adolescents and Young Adults
Earn up to 1.0 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™ or 1.0 Contact Hour.
Audio Webcast Despite improvements in the safety and tolerability of Long Acting Reversible Contraceptives (LARCs), as well as current guideline recommendations, recent studies suggest that physician attitudes have been slow to change. Physicians' concerns regarding the use of LARCs may reduce patient counseling regarding this option, which in turn will limit a patient's knowledge regarding LARC use and safety and as a consequence result in underuse. These findings suggest that there is a significant unmet need for educational interventions targeting health providers concerning the safety of LARCs for young and nulliparous women which may play an important role in increasing access to LARCs for this population.
