APPCNC's use of digital technology to prevent unplanned pregnancies has been featured in the November 2013 edition of Contraceptive Technology Update. Contraceptive Technology Update is considered the gold standard source of information on contraceptive and sexual health care in the fields of obstetrics and gynecology.
The article - Technology holds the key — Help young women pick prevention options - highlights two APPCNC initiatives: the BrdsNBz Text Line System and The Playbook, our pilot project to connect sexually active 18-19-year olds with contraceptive services in Gaston County.
The November 2013 edition of Contraceptive Technology Update also provides a summary on the latest work in the field, including:
- Why providers need to make contraceptive effectiveness a No. 1 priority (featuring new survey data by The National Campaign to Prevent Teen and Unplanned Pregnancy!);
- How to improve HPV vaccine uptake in young men;
- STI risks to young people; and
- Why effectiveness numbers should matter to clinicians
