This Provider Toolkit offers a step-by-step guide for initiating a modern medication abortion service within your primary care practice. It provides information on setting up the service, patient-centered standards of care, and resources for understanding federal and state regulations on abortion services.
This resource is part of Access, Delivered: an initiative to create new channels of abortion access in the U.S. in partnership with Plan C (plancpills.org) and the University of Washington Department of Family Medicine. As part of the initiative and under the leadership of Dr. Emily Godfrey, the team uses implementation science methods to inform, improve, and share innovative models of medication abortion care for primary care practices. In addition to regular updates to the Provider Toolkit, we will evaluate the acceptability and feasibility of this model among providers and medication abortion users.
The COVID-19 pandemic has dispelled the myth that physical clinics are needed to safely provide early abortion care. Primary care and other clinicians have a unique opportunity to shape the future of abortion access in the United States by using “no test” protocols and providing service via telemedicine with pills mailed directly to patients.Click Here to Access & Download the Provider Toolkit
