"Collaboration can ensure that your evaluation design is realistic, appropriate and effective for the context," explains ETR researcher Pam Drake, PhD. Mona Desai, Pamela Drake, Sarah Kershner. For the past 6 years, ETR researcher Pam Drake, PhD, has been collaborating with Children's Hospital of Los Angeles (CHLA) Division of Adolescent and Young Adult Medicine on a project designed to support teen parents and prevent unintended repeat births. One strategy in the project is to increase the use of long-acting reversible contraception (LARC). These contraceptives, including IUDs and hormonal implants, are the most effective available today, and are safe for most women, including adolescents. On Wednesday, July 20, Dr. Drake and co-presenters Mona Desai, MPH, Leslie Clark, PhD and Vivian Okonta, all from CHLA, are offering a poster describing how they measured the consistency of contraception use over time with the teen mothers participating in their project.
