Pearls for Practice: Simplified Contraception Counselling


The SOGC recommends that "Health care providers should give clear, simple instructions, both written and oral, on missed hormonal contraceptive pills as part of contraceptive counselling." (2008 SOGC recommendations on missed contraception. PDF). Remember, national guidelines are fair game for the family medicine examination and will be covered in The Review Course so be sure to sign up.


A simple way to do this is to print out and provide the patient with the SOGC website sexualityandu.ca, which contains useful information on this topic in an easy-to-understand format called "S.O.S. Stay On Schedule." Information is tailored for patients who are on multiple forms of contraception.
