Nurse-led Model for Medication Abortion Provision in Regional & Rural Vic - Caroline de Moel-Mandel
To improve medication abortion access in service poor areas of Victoria, nurse-led medication abortion provision is feasible. Yet, a range of barriers can hinder model implementation. These include limited medication abortion training for primary health care nurses, a lack of professional support, restricted access to diagnostic facilities, abortion stigma, and insufficient funding for nurse-led medication abortion provision in general practice. Regulatory and structural interventions are therefore needed, and underlying unfounded medication abortion concerns and prejudices must be addressed.
