Optimizing IUD Delivery for Adolescents and Young Adults, 1st ed. 2019 Counseling, Placement, and Management
Coordonnateurs : Coles Mandy, Mays Aisha
Many individuals worldwide initiate sexual activity during their adolescent and young adult (AYA) years and are in need of safe and effective contraceptive services. Because AYAs are at particularly high risk for inconsistent or incorrect use of contraception, long-acting reversible contraception (LARC) including intrauterine devices (IUDs) are recommended as a first-line contraceptive option for adolescents by many international professional organizations. IUDs are particularly advantageous because these methods are safe and highly effective (>99% efficacy), are easier to keep confidential because they are often undetectable to others, and do not require daily adherence or frequent visits for refills. Despite significant evidence of their safety, acceptability, and effectiveness among AYAs, IUDs remain underutilized in this population.
Written by experts in the field, Optimizing IUD Delivery for Adolescents and Young Adults provides a comprehensive framework that examines the history of IUDs, counseling, initiation, placement, and follow-up techniques that are unique to AYA populations. The text closes with resource chapters, including, expert clinical pearls for adolescent IUD delivery, how to access IUD training, and information on IUD billing and reimbursement. In an effort to integrate the voice of youth, clinical case examples and patient stories are utilized throughout to provide both a clinical grounding for each chapter and context within which to apply the chapter material.
