Improving Contraceptive Counseling in Internal Medicine Primary Care
Project Description: Half of all pregnancies in the united states are unintended and adequate contraceptive information, counseling, and prescriptions are essential to helping reduce the major health risks associated with unplanned pregnancies. Recently, there has been a National Campaign that has been implemented to address this very issue. The One Key Question campaign encourages providers to ask reproductive age women the simple question, “Do you want to become pregnant in the next year?” to initiate the conversation about contraception. It has also been well documented that internal medicine primary care often fails to address contraception in routine office visits and annual appointments. This QI project will address if implementation of the One Key Question in UF Internal Medicine Primary Care can help increase the rate of contraceptive counseling and documentation.
