Priority 4 from the Contraception PSP

UNCERTAINTY: What models of care increase access and support decision-making for vulnerable groups (such as young people, people who don't speak or read English)? (JLA PSP Priority 4)
Overall ranking 4
JLA question ID 0049/4
Explanatory note Systematic reviews of randomised control trials and non- random studies provide moderate level evidence that educational interventions and behavioural interventions such as motivational interviewing can improve effective use of contraception and reduce unwanted pregnancy. The cost of providing these services such as skilled staff may limit their use in clinical practice. Cost effective methods of supporting use of effective contraception for all women and those who are vulnerable are needed.
