Empowering your patients

Contraceptive care starts with a conversation. We want patients at Upstream-trained health centers to have a voice in their own reproductive health, and feel empowered to make decisions. According to our surveys: 

  • 94% of patients report making a birth control choice of their own or with some input from clinical staff (i.e., shared decision making)
  • 92% of patients report receiving enough information to make the best decision about birth control
  • 95% of patients are able to access to their preferred method

Benefits of Partnering with Us

We support our partners in offering the best contraceptive care to their patients – so that every patient leaves feeling respected, well-informed, and that their needs have been met.

Our program comes with $25,000 – $50,000 grants to help offset the cost of staff time spent on the program.

Our dedicated Upstream team tailors our program to fit your busy schedules and technology capabilities – ensuring a cohesive experience for the whole team, and time spent on areas where support is most valuable.

Our training is CME-accredited, and often a highlight for our partners. Your staff can receive credits towards their professional development goals, while learning alongside health care professionals from across the country.
