SSF 2023 Grand Rounds 3/29/23 - Shared Decision Making and Contraception Counseling

South San Francisco, CA US
March 29, 2023


Cultural and Linguistic Competency/ Implicit Bias: 

  • Provider disparities in care provision also have been reported with more likely to agree to sterilization of minority and poor women and more likely to recommend IUDs to low socioeconomic women of color than to low socioeconomic white women.

  • Implicit biases may lead providers to encourage certain kinds of contraception (ie highly effective methods over patient preferred methods.  Similar implicit biases may lead to decreased rapport and trust that impose increased barriers to patients seeking out family planning advice.
