Clinician Opportunity: Participate in a New Research Study!

One of PICCK’s Clinical Trainers is looking for clinicians to participate in a new research study! Neena Qasba, MD MPH is an OB/GYN at Baystate Medical Center and is looking for Massachusetts-based clinicians to complete an individual online interview regarding the ACCESS Law. For more information please read the following letter from the ACCESS Study Research Team. If you are interested in participating, please email [email protected].

This study is not affiliated with the PICCK program.




You are invited to participate in the Access, Contraceptive Coverage, Expected Supply in our State: ACCESS Study Part 3. The ACCESS law allows pharmacies to dispense a 12-month supply of short-acting contraceptive methods like oral contraceptive pills, contraceptive patches, contraceptive vaginal rings, and birth control injections for women who request this and it allows insurance coverage for this extended supply. Your participation in this interview will help us understand how to better implement the ACCESS law in Massachusetts.

If you are a women’s health physician or midwife or advanced practitioner or primary care clinician caring for women of reproductive age, you are eligible to participate.

Your participation is completely voluntary. The interview will take approximately 30 minutes.

The interview will be scheduled at a date and time convenient for you and will be done over Zoom. The interview will be audio and video recorded and transcribed for analysis.

All your responses will be kept confidential. These findings may be published or presented. This study is approved by Baystate Medical Center Institutional Review Board (1656664-2).

You will receive compensation of a $50 gift card for your time.
