For A Project To Roll Out The LARC Training Intervention To More Sites

This grant would provide continued support to the Bixby Center at University of California at San Francisco for a project aimed at reducing rates of unintended pregnancy in the United States by increasing the use of IUDs and implants, the most effective reversible contraceptive methods. During the prior grant period the team at the University completed a large randomized controlled trial, which found that health centers whose staff completed the half-day IUD and implant training doubled the percent of their clients who chose IUDs and implants as their method of birth control. With this evidence of a significant impact, the University team will now focus on delivering the IUD and implant training intervention to large health centers around the country and encouraging other training institutions, nursing schools, and health center networks to use the University's IUD and implant training intervention for their own trainings.
