Performance Measures for Contraceptive Care: A New Tool to Enhance Access to Contraception

< Back to All Resources

This article from Obstetrics & Gynecology describes three National Quality Forum-endorsed performance measures for contraceptive care intended to monitor effective methods and access to contraception (before and after child birth). These care measures are designed to ensure accessibility to more women through the full spectrum of contraceptive methods. For the 38 million women who are at risk, these quality improvement efforts have the ability to reduce unintended pregnancy significantly and ensure that all women have the resources they need to make decisions regarding when to become pregnant.
