The November 2018 edition of the Sexual Health, Reproductive Health & HIV Policy eBulletin brings you the final report of the Contraception Priority Setting Partnership (PSP), a participatory research project led by FSRH and James Lind Alliance (JLA). It has brought together healthcare practitioners and users to define a top 10 list of the most important research priorities in contraception.

The final Contraception PSP report, “Collaboration, Choice, Care”, presents the top 10 research priorities that have only been partially - or not addressed - by research in contraception to date as defined by users and frontline healthcare professionals. It bridges the gap that exists between research and those who deliver and receive contraceptive care, giving those at the heart of contraception the opportunity to shape the reproductive choices of the future.

The report also provides more detail on the robust method followed in the Contraception PSP, the JLA method. JLA is a non-profit coordinated by the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR). You can read more about the Contraception PSP in this month’s eFeature by Professor Judith Stephenson, chair of the Contraception PSP Steering Group, who explains why it is so important that the research agenda is also set by the people most directly involved in contraceptive care. Further information on the project can be found here.

This month’s eBulletin also covers responses by leading sector organisations to the Autumn Budget delivered by Chancellor Philip Hammond, the new vision on prevention launched by Secretary of State for Health & Social Care Matt Hancock and a briefing session organised by SRH sector organisations to discuss public health funding with parliamentarians.

Finally, in this month’s issue, the eBulletin’s Editor Helen Christophers presents the findings of the readers survey in an Editor’s Note, highlighting the readers’ most common concerns and areas of interest.
