Despite the wide range of birth control methods available today, there is no "one size fits all" when it comes to contraception: the right method for one person will not necessarily be the best method for someone else, and a patient's method choice at one point in their life may not be the best method for them at another stage. Health care providers are key partners for patients interested in using contraception, and they have the opportunity and responsibility to provide information to their clients to help them make informed decisions about the best method for them.

The QFP describes five Principles for Providing Quality Counseling, including building rapport, personalizing discussions, and confirming client understanding.
