Evaluating virtual visits for contraceptive counseling: an exploratory study using the Person-Centered Contraceptive Counseling (PCCC) scale, a patient-reported outcome measure.

Contraception 2024 March 28
OBJECTIVE(S): To describe patient-reported quality of care for virtual contraceptive counseling, using the 4-item Person-Centered Contraception Counseling (PCCC) scale. Secondary analyses evaluated PCCC scores by patient subgroups.

STUDY DESIGN: From December 2021 to May 2022, we offered an anonymous web-based survey, to English and Spanish-speaking female patients 18 to 45 years old who had virtual visits through two Family Planning offices affiliated with Columbia University/New York Presbyterian Hospital in New York City.

RESULTS: Among 196 respondents, 133 (68%) respondents gave the top score. The proportion who gave the top PCCC score was higher for the faculty-based practice vs. community-based practice (62% vs. 38% respectively, p=0.02), video vs. telephone (84% vs. 16% respectively, p=0.01), and English vs. Spanish (86% vs. 14% respectively, p=0.02); but did not differ for ethnicity (p=0.34).

CONCLUSIONS: Patient-perceived quality of contraceptive counseling in virtual visits was high, with some disparities seen in the subgroups.

IMPLICATIONS: This exploratory study about contraceptive counseling during virtual visits showed that 68% of survey respondents gave the top box PCCC score. Our work also suggests disparities in patient experiences based on several factors. Future work may expand on nuances of disparities and how these influence care.
