Quality care checklist and the safety of combined hormonal contraception

Quality care checklists are a form with a series of health questions and answers but unlike many forms, checklists are not submitted back to the practice when you complete them. They are for your own use to help you develop a better understanding.

This questionnaire is intended for educational purposes only and does not replace the advice and treatment of a clinician (e.g., doctor) but can indicate when you should have a discussion with a clinician (e.g., doctor), about a possible risk.

Videos and podcasts
