This is a reminder to participate in a study for which you may have already received an email request. If you have already completed the survey – thank you very much for your time and cooperation! If you have not yet completed the survey, I would greatly appreciate your taking the time to participate.

My name is Erica Lyons and I am a nurse practitioner student at the University of Vermont. I am currently working on my Master's Thesis, and would greatly appreciate your help in completing a brief survey regarding APRN provision of reproductive health care and prevention and management of unintended pregnancy in Vermont. The goal of this research study is to determine gaps in access to reproductive health services, the need for provider training, and inclusion of unintended pregnancy prevention and management into the curriculum of advanced practice nursing programs.

The link to the survey can be found below. The survey contains 30 multiple-choice questions. The survey will take approximately 25 minutes to complete. This survey is entirely voluntary and no personal identifiable information will be asked. There will be no link between your email address and the survey and your data will remain completely anonymous.

There are no anticipated risks to your participation or direct benefit to you. The information you provide might aid in future research. The data collected from the survey will be used for my thesis. By initiating and submitting the survey you are providing voluntary consent for the use of your data in this research.

If you have any question regarding the survey or the study please contact Erica Lyons at 802.279.0139 or
