This paper reports on a study that evaluated the feasibility and acceptability of telephone follow-up after medical abortion using an at-home semi-quantitative pregnancy test (SQPT) and checklist, and compared this mode of follow-up with traditional in-clinic assessment.  The researchers found that this alternative method of follow-up was indeed feasible and highly effective in identifying ongoing pregnancy.
