• Current trials

Our research program currently includes three large trials in primary care: the AusCAPPS Network, ORIENT Study, ALLIANCE Trial. We are also undertaking projects that are focused on improving the sexual and reproductive health of priority populations.

The AusCAPPS Network

The Australian Contraception and Abortion Primary Care Practitioner Support Network (AusCAPPS) improves equitable access to long-acting reversible contraception (LARC) and early medical abortion (EMA) services in primary care. To support the expansion of best-practice service delivery across Australia, the AusCAPPS Network connects EMA and LARC providers through peer-networking opportunities and access to resources and training.

The ORIENT Study

Australian women living in rural and regional areas experience many barriers to accessing long-acting reversible contraception (LARC) and early medical abortion (EMA) services. The ORIENT Study is investigating how the quality, availability and accessibility of LARC (including intrauterine devices and implants) and EMA might be improved using a nurse-led model of care in general practice.
