UCSF College Health Study on Contraceptive Training and Education at Community Colleges

Sep 16, 2019

Overview

The UCSF College Health Study on Contraceptive Training and Education at Community Colleges looks to measure whether or not a training and education intervention for women at community colleges will result in more comprehensive knowledge and access to contraception. Students and staff will be educated on methods such as intrauterine devices (IUDs) and implants in a one-day education course.

 

Study Information

In this study, participating community colleges will have their staff and students complete a one day course intended to educate and train staff to counsel and provide contraception. Students will then be given materials and resources about contraception and access if they are in the intervention arm. In the placebo arm, students will be given nutrition education about the impacts of sugar on health. Subjects will then take a questionnaire to see if the intervention arm students are more educated on birth control.
