Abstract [en]

Previous studies have shown that in contraceptive counselling the provider sets the agenda. The aim of this study was to describe how a group of Swedish nurse-midwives think and act in their role as contraceptive counsellors. Semi-structured questions were put to a convenience sample of sixteen nurse-midwives. Data were analyzed using qualitative content analysis. Five categories were identified; exploring the woman´s situation, providing information about contraceptive methods, performing medical evaluation, guiding the decision-making process, and following up on the counselling. Results showed that the providers had developed their own strategies and suggest the use of interventions which combine counselling methods to provide information, with a theory for decision-making, to help in giving advice. This study could contribute to personal reflection on contraceptive counselling in practice, both for experienced counsellors and those new to the task.
