Abstract
  • This study explored factors that affect acquisition and proper use of contraception among the college-age Latina population at Oregon State University. Interviews were conducted with eleven health care providers at OSU’s Student Health Services during the spring of 2014. Using content analysis we identified individual-level barriers including lack of knowledge or misunderstanding of contraceptive methods, religious beliefs, and partner involvement. We also found service delivery-level barriers including lack of a preferred provider, cost, and a fear of a lack of privacy/ confidentiality. Identified facilitators included CCare, preferred providers, translation services, contraceptive education, and outreach by health promotion. Examining the areas in which Student Health Services are doing well and areas where improvement could be made may be important as health care practitioners strive to provide culturally competent contraceptive care to the Latina population on campus.
