About

In this study, the investigators propose to create and pilot-test an asynchronous medication abortion provision service.

Full description

In this study, the investigators propose to create and pilot-test an asynchronous medication abortion (MA) provision service. The foundation of this service will be a website that provides information combined with a linked screening questionnaire. The questionnaire will be designed to collect the information recommended by current MA guidelines for history-based MA eligibility assessment. If the patient's responses meet specified criteria, the questionnaire will be sent to a study clinician, who will then determine whether a real-time clinical consultation or facility-based tests are needed. If the clinician decides that they are not, treatment will be provided accordingly. The primary goal of the study is to collect preliminary data on feasibility of the approach, abortion outcomes, and participant satisfaction. The investigators will use these data to determine whether to proceed with further development of asynchronous MA provision.
