Contraception clinical trials at UCSF
3 in progress, 2 open to new patients
open to eligible females ages 15–19
The purpose of this study is to determine whether delivery of SpeakOut, a behavioral intervention to increase social communication about long-acting reversible contraceptive (LARC) methods among adolescents, is associated with increased uptake of LARC methods among the social contacts of SpeakOut recipients. The investigators will conduct a cluster randomized controlled trial of SpeakOut with adolescent LARC users and their female peers. Over three years, SpeakOut will be implemented in eight partner clinics. IUD and implant users aged 15 to 19 who attend appointments at participating clinics will be invited to enroll in the evaluation study as "primary" participants and receive either SpeakOut or a control intervention about alcohol use. The social contacts of primary participants will be asked to enroll in the study as "secondary" participants. The study's primary outcome will be the proportion of sexually-active secondary participants who initiate use of a LARC method within 9 months of study enrollment.
