These videos present one model of resident training before, during, and after a manual vacuum aspiration abortion that takes place in a family medicine setting. They are designed to spark discussion regarding patient-centered care and communication throughout the abortion process. Rather than presenting a single recommended approach, the videos are intended to highlight a range of important issues that providers may encounter when attempting to simultaneously train residents and provide optimal patient care. They can be used in both “train-the-trainer” sessions and didactic sessions for new learners. (You can find a full version of the video below.)
