for a Study on Telehealth Abortion Among Trans and Nonbinary Patients
A study to help researchers, healthcare providers, pregnant people, and policymakers understand the experiences of people of all genders using an online service to get an abortion with pills.
What is the goal of this study?
Drs. Andréa Becker and Ushma Upadhyay of UCSF’s ANISRH are conducting in-depth interviews to explore the experiences of trans, nonbinary, and gender-expansive people who accessed medication abortion from a telehealth clinic. Even though people of all genders have abortions, research with people who aren’t cisgender women is extremely limited. The goal of this study is to understand patient experiences and improve the delivery of care for patients of all genders.
What happens if I participate in the study?
To describe patient experiences with telehealth abortions, we will conduct 30-45 minute interviews by Zoom or phone and participants can call from any private place.
We will give participants a $100 Visa card for their time.
Who is eligible to participate in the study?
People who have used a telehealth abortion service and identify as trans, nonbinary, genderqueer, gender expansive, or gender questioning.
Must also be 18 years old or older at the time of the interview and be able to conduct the interview in English.
What is the intended impact of the study?
This study will help researchers, healthcare providers, pregnant people, and policymakers understand the experience of people of all genders using an online service to get an abortion with pills.
