The CAP Resource Center offers web-based tools, job-aids, and resources designed to support healthcare leadership and improvement teams in planning for CAP implementation.
A one-page overview of the Contraceptive Action Plan (CAP)
CAP Strategy: Implementation and Program Model
A graphical depiction detailing the CAP 5 phases of implementation alongside the key components of the program model. Effectively implementing each of the 5 phases will ensure the health care system is able to create and sustain the program model. Together, this will lead to an increase in women’s access to and use of effective contraception, including LARC methods.
This job aid will help staff identified to provide contraceptive counseling discuss contraceptive options with clients. It includes some of the key things that women care about when selecting a birth control method, including effectiveness, duration, starting/stopping, side effects and how to use the method. It will support counseling staff in providing accurate and unbiased information about their birth control options during a counseling session, and to assist them in supporting the client in selecting a method that best meets their needs.
LARC Costing Tool
A resource to support healthcare providers in examining assumptions about the affordability of LARC methods. Specifically, it is designed to consider if costs associated with the provision of LARC will be covered (break-even), whether a profit can be realized, or if losses are projected through activities associated with billing third-party payers for the provision of LARC services. Going through this analysis will support healthcare providers in examining the “business case” for the provision of LARC on-site. Information gleaned can also help to support healthcare providers in negotiations with third-party payers, specifically with those plans for which the costs of providing LARC are higher than the reimbursements received.
Using Billing Codes to Monitor Performance
This list of billing codes were developed specifically to facilitate quality improvement efforts to track the provision of contraceptive care, particularly as health centers transition from ICD-9 to ICD-10.
CAP 5-Steps of Contraceptive Counseling Model
This provides an overview of the 5 steps for providing client-centered contraceptive counseling. More information about this process can be found in the “CAP Contraceptive Counseling Module 3 – CAP 5-step Process"
The CAP Patient Experience Survey was developed to support health centers examine how clients experience the contraceptive services they receive, which can serve as an important measure of quality care. The survey assesses the degree to which the patient was satisfied with the contraceptive care they received: did they feel listened to and respected, that they received sufficient information to make a good choice for themselves, any coercion to use a specific birth control method, etc. Please note that this survey has not been validated through research, but questions were taken from or modified from existing surveys, and the current version of the survey has been used successfully in multiple large health care organizations.
