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 16 nurse-midwives. Data were analysed 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
