Abortion clinical trials at University of California Health
2 in progress, 1 open to eligible people
open to eligible females ages 18-50
This will be a pilot study among two pharmacists providing start to finish medication abortions to 10 patients utilizing a previously created toolkit. Following completion of the pilot, we will perform in-depth semi-structured interviews with the participating patients and pharmacists to understand their experiences with pharmacist provision of medication abortion. In addition, we will elicit feedback about ways to refine the toolkit to support the scale-up of pharmacist provision of medication abortion in the future.
Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients
This study aims to evaluate the feasibility, acceptability, and effectiveness of dispensing mifepristone via a mail-order pharmacy. The investigators will recruit patients at up to 10 primary care and internal medicines sites not currently providing abortion services around the country, as well as abortion clinic sites. Patients will go through routine in clinic visits to determine eligibility and then will receive the medications in the mail at their preferred address. The investigators will survey patients 3 and 14 days after the initial clinic visit and interview providers at the end of the study.
