Condition or disease Intervention/treatment
Contraception Other: Pharmacists & women's perspectives on pharmacist prescribed hormonal contraception

Detailed Description:
There are no studies examining New Mexico pharmacists' interest in prescribing hormonal contraceptives or rural New Mexican women's support for pharmacist prescribed hormonal contraceptives. However, some states where pharmacists already prescribe contraception have experienced difficulties in implementing the education, infrastructure, and financial support necessary to provide hormonal contraception in the community pharmacy setting. Nationwide, 68% of women reported that they would utilize pharmacist prescribed hormonal contraception and cited benefits such as convenient hours and locations of pharmacies. The goal of this study is to identify the thoughts and perceptions of pharmacy access to hormonal contraception among rural women and pharmacists. This will be key in order to address concerns or perceived barriers in order to inform the implementation of this program.
