Health for Her: Reconceptualizing and Measuring Pregnancy Intentions: the Desire to Avoid Pregnancy Scale
Title: Reconceptualizing and Measuring Pregnancy Intentions: the Desire to Avoid Pregnancy Scale
Speaker: Corinne Rocca, Associate Professor, Bixby Center for Global Reproductive Health, Advancing New Standards in Reproductive Health (ANSIRH) at the University of California, San Francisco

Corinne H. Rocca, PhD, MPH, is an epidemiologist who combines approaches from social epidemiology with those of demographers and clinicians interested in understanding sexual behavior, contraceptive use and unintended pregnancy. Broadly, her research examines how structural factors, such as access to reproductive health care and cultural norms, affect risk of unintended pregnancy among high-risk populations in the US and South Asia. In particular, her research has focused on expanding our understanding of pregnancy intentions, including what influences adolescents’ and women’s attitudes towards pregnancy and how intentions translate into behavior. She uses quantitative psychometric techniques, including item response theory, to improve the measurement of pregnancy intention, childbearing attitudes, as well as other latent variables important to understanding pregnancy risk.
