Participate in a Birth Control Pharmacist Research Study

We are working on a project related to implementation of pharmacist-prescribed birth control services in pharmacies. And we would love to include your perspectives!

1. Case Series of Adopter Pharmacies

We are creating a case series of pharmacies with the goal of inspiring and guiding other pharmacies to offer birth control services in their pharmacies and make contraception more accessible to their communities. We are inviting pharmacies that are currently offering this service to share their decision-making and implementation process to adopt contraception services. If you are the champion/decision maker for this service at your pharmacy, you are eligible to participate in a virtual interview. Interviews will last no longer than 90 minutes and interviewees will receive a $150 Amazon e-gift card for their time.If you are interested in participating, please click the button below.

2. Focus Groups of Pharmacists and Pharmacy Leaders

We are inviting pharmacists, pharmacy owners, and pharmacy executives to share the resources needed, as well as the anticipated challenges, when providing birth control services in their pharmacies. The goal of the study is to create a collection of resources and tools to help pharmacists provide birth control services and improve patients’ access to birth control–and the best way to do that is to gather insights from you! These insights will be collected through a collaborative process that involves participation in one focus group (60 minutes) and a follow-up survey (30 minutes). Individuals who participate in a focus group and complete the follow-up survey will receive a $150 Amazon e-gift card for their time. For individuals who only complete the survey (but not the focus group) will receive a $75 Amazon e-gift card for their time. If you are interested in participating, please click the button below.


Participate in a Partner Organization Research Study

1. Stories of Providing Care Post-Roe

Researchers at University of California San Francisco (UCSF) are collecting de-identified stories of clinical management that has changed since Roe v. Wade was overturned. Through an anonymous survey, health care providers may leave a written narrative or a voice memo describing the case.

Examples of the type of stories they are seeking, include:

  • Delayed provision of abortion care for people whose health may be compromised by continuing the pregnancy (including young adolescents)
  • Delayed management of ectopic pregnancy
  • Delayed treatment for spontaneous pregnancy loss and preterm premature rupture of membranes
  • Difficulty providing standard-of-care treatment due to the concern of causing an abortion, regardless of whether the patient was pregnant or not (e.g., chemotherapy, methotrexate, or misoprostol for a non-abortion indication)

 

If you are a health care provider who was involved in any part of the care of the patient, please submit your story. Any member of the health care team—physician, nurse, nurse practitioner, midwife, physician assistant, pharmacist, social worker, pharmacist, psychologist, or other allied health professional—may submit a story. If you cared for the patient at any point—either initially or possibly after they traveled to another state—you may submit a story.
