BMC to Lead Education Program for Maternity Providers in Mass. on Contraception Counseling

(Boston) – Researchers at Boston Medical Center (BMC) have received a $3.2M grant to educate hospital providers statewide on how best to counsel women about contraception use, particularly long-acting reversible contraception methods like intrauterine devices (IUDs) and implants. The program, funded by the Massachusetts Department of Health and Human Services, will work with the 44 maternity hospitals, with more intensive interventions at the hospitals that serve a patient population with the greatest need, where this training will have the largest impact.
