National Abortion Federation (NAF) 45th Annual Meeting

Date
May 2nd, 2022

A panel session, “Is Less More? A Critical Reappraisal of Medication Abortion Follow-up”, was selected for NAF’s 45th Annual Meeting in Florida.

In this 90-minute session, panelists engaged the audience in a facilitated discussion on follow-up methods with the notion that one size does not fit all and addressed the anxieties of continuing, incomplete, and ectopic pregnancies with a new, fresh perspective, informed by the changes in services during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Attracting a large crowd, the session aimed to inspire innovative service delivery and shift collective values toward increased autonomy in medication abortion, as well as other person-centered measures of cost and convenience.
