Evaluation of the Miscarriage Care Initiative: A Program to Integrate Comprehensive Early Pregnancy Loss Management in Primary Care Settings

This publication explores an evaluation of RHAP’s Miscarriage Care Initiative. Managing early pregnancy loss (EPL) with expectant, medication, and manual vacuum aspiration (MVA) management in primary care is safe, effective, and acceptable, yet, few family physicians provide all three care options. We implemented the Miscarriage Care Initiative (MCI) to help primary care organizations serving underserved communities and family medicine residencies integrate comprehensive EPL treatment options into practice. This study evaluates the effect of the MCI on the provision of EPL care and family physicians’ professional growth.
