Overview of Study

Are you a clinician who wants to support women's reproductive choices?

Family Planning NSW is a supporting partner in the AusCAPPS study which aims to establish, implement and evaluate an innovative, multidisciplinary online network to increase the availability of long-acting reversible contraception and medical abortion services in Australian primary care. This will be done via PBS and MBs data comparing in the year before and the year after the intervention.

The study is led by Prof. Danielle Mazza, Head of Department of General Practice at Monash University and SPHERE CRE, and funded by an NHMRC Partnership Grant.

We invite any general practitioners, practice nurses, and community pharmacists working in general practice/primary care to participate in the AusCAPPS Network.


  • Connect with like-minded peers.
  • Engage in a safe space through discussions, case studies, ask an expert, webinars, and more.
  • Provide consent for us to access your PBS and MBS data for the relevant long-acting reversible contraception and medical abortion numbers.
