16. Improving Adolescent Access to Contraception via Physician Training

      Adolescents are at greater risk of not using the most effective contraception, despite evidence showing intrauterine devices (IUDs) are safe and efficacious in this population. The literature identifies that providers attitudes and prescription patterns are barriers to provision of IUDs to adolescents.

Our secondary hypothesis is that we will see an increase in counselling documentation, Obstetrics and Gynecology (OBGYN) referrals, contraceptive coding on E/M visits and contraceptive prescription provision.
