Buelt, Monica, Muff, Katherine and Walker, Megan. 2017. Education techniques for effective counseling regarding prevention of unintended pregnancies--In Proceedings: 13th Annual Symposium on Graduate Research and Scholarly Projects. Wichita, KS: Wichita State University, p.94
While ample resources exist detailing the variety of available contraceptive options for patients who desire to prevent an unintended pregnancy, there are limited resources concerning how a provider might approach this topic with a patient. With this gap in mind, the primary focus of this research is to equip healthcare providers with education techniques in order to facilitate a more effective discussion with their patients. By providing a resource on timing of contraceptive education, appropriate patient interview techniques, and common patient misconceptions, this research aims to open the discussion between provider and patient regarding pregnancy prevention.
