Explaining Contraception Job Aids for Healthcare Providers
Date: August 2017
These job aids have been developed to help health care staff explain key facts about each contraceptive method using plain language, in order to help clients choose the method that is best for them. The job aids are intended to be used as resources for staff to share information with a client within an interactive, client-centered conversation; they are not designed as patient education materials.
Please note that these job aids do not include medical contraindications for each contraceptive method. Providers may use the following resources as needed for information on medical contraindications:
- U.S. medical eligibility criteria for contraceptive use, 2016
- U.S. selected practice recommendations for contraceptive use, 2016
