The Network

The Abortion Clinical Research Network (the Network) works collaboratively with researchers, abortion providers, partners, and patients to answer pressing clinical questions to improve abortion quality, safety, efficiency, and access. Network sites receive a variety of opportunities to participate in research studies as well as resources and research support.

By creating a Society Connect account, Network sites can access special benefits and resources, including complimentary CITI Program research ethics training and a repository of research and clinical protocol templates.

Interested in joining the Network?

Membership in the Network is open to any clinic that provides abortion. Sites in the Network agree to be added to our mailing list and complete an annual site survey with details about their practice. No prior research experience is necessary to be a Network site.
