Description: Long acting reversible contraceptives (LARCs) have been shown to be a highly effective, long-term contraceptive solution in women. Available options include intrauterine devices (IUDs) and sub-dermal hormonal implants. Despite their proven high efficacy, a lack of knowledge in the medical community as well as barriers to access have limited their use. This program aims to provide a baseline education on the pharmacological options available in the United States, explore the framework of an effective patient-centered discussion, as well identify potential barriers.
