Exploring the uptake and provision of Long-Acting Reversible Contraception (LARC) among ‘vulnerable’ groups: a mixed-methods study
This project focuses specifically on ethnic groups which are minoritised in Wales, and explores their experience in of accessing and using Long-Acting Reversible Contraception methods. It will employ a mixed-methods approach, with quantitative work that analyses use of LARC as reported in clinical records, both currently and over time. A survey component may also be included. The qualitative work hopes to examine the experience of LARC use among ‘vulnerable’ groups through semi-structured interviews/focus groups, both from a provider and user perspective. I hope to ground this work in the tenets of reproductive justice, while drawing on a feminist epistemology.
