Speaker bio:

Dr. Christine Dehlendorf is a family physician with advanced training in family planning and a Master’s Degree in Clinical Research. She is the director of the Program in Woman-Centered Contraception, which develops, evaluates, and disseminates interventions to meet women’s reproductive needs and preferences. She conducts formative research to better understand women’s contraceptive experiences, social communication about contraception, and disparities in contraceptive use and counseling. The program’s recent studies include a randomized control trial to test the efficacy of a tablet-based contraceptive decision support tool, as well as studies examining the effect of women’s social exposure to intrauterine device (IUD) users on their behavior, knowledge, and attitudes related to IUD use. Dr. Dehlendorf has conducted studies examining the relationship of patient race/ethnicity and socioeconomic status with variation in health care providers’ recommendations for contraceptive methods and with the quality of contraceptive counseling. She is currently developing and validating a performance measure for patient-centered contraceptive counseling.
