Children's Hospital is part of the UPMC family.
TIPS is a clinical intervention designed to facilitate patient-provider communication on topics of intimate partner violence, reproductive coercion, and more effective birth control methods. Women are recruited to take a survey prior to their clinical visits at family planning clinics. Based on needs identified using patients' answers to a questionnaire, scripts are printed out for the provider. Patients are randomized to either receiving their own script and information or receiving none.
Females ages 16-29 who speak English and plan to stay in the area for the next 6 months (for follow-up survey).
Participants will take a 15 minute survey prior to their clinical visit and a brief (<5 minute) exit survey immediately following their visit. A 15 minute follow-up survey is completed 4 months later.
