Abstract

BACKGROUND:

Shared decision making (SDM) is a potentially valuable but underexplored approach to contraceptive counseling.

METHODS:

We determined the correlation between patient report of SDM and of whether their provider had a method preference with measures of satisfaction.

RESULTS:

Women reporting SDM were more likely to be satisfied with counseling than those reporting a provider-driven decision and were more likely to be satisfied with their method than those reporting a patient-driven decision. Patients who felt that the provider had a method preference were less likely to be satisfied with their method.

CONCLUSIONS:

SDM in contraceptive counseling is associated with patient satisfaction.
