The PAGNY Health and Research Foundation (PHRF), on behalf of North Central Bronx (NCB) and Jacobi hospitals, proposes to conduct a large scale randomized controlled trial (RCT) to replicate the Teen Options to Prevent Pregnancy (T.O.P.P.) A program that was originally developed and successfully implemented by OhioHealth. The study aims to reduce rapid repeat pregnancy and promote healthy birth spacing among adolescent mothers in New York City (NYC) by using (1) telephone-based, and in-person care coordination, (2) facilitated access to contraceptive services, and (3) referrals to social support services. These services will be delivered to program participants over an 18-month period by nurse educators trained in motivational interviewing (MI) and a dedicated social worker.
The NYC-T.O.P.P. RCT will recruit 1000 adolescent mothers ages 10 to 19 from 11 hospitals operated by New York City Health and Hospitals (H+H) and will offer the NYC-T.O.P.P. program to 500 randomly selected mothers. H+H is the largest municipal healthcare system in the nation. From 2015-2017, these 11 hospitals delivered 3,087 babies from mothers under the age of 20. The vast majority of adolescent mothers are low-income minorities from the poorest NYC neighborhoods.
