Adolescent Experience of Care in Maternal Health, Reproductive Health, and Family Planning: A Scoping Review

This is a review of adolescent Experience of Care (EOC) in maternal health, reproductive health, and family planning in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs). The purpose of the review was to understand current definitions of patient-reported EOC for adolescents; identify important theoretical domains to measure adolescent EOC; and identify measures of EOC for adolescents in maternal health, reproductive health, and family planning. The main findings were a lack of consistency in the definitions of EOC and scant measurement of EOC in LMICs. There is a need to create a comprehensive definition of the components of EOC for adolescents in LMICs, and to develop a conceptual framework for how adolescent EOC influences health outcomes. Using these new tools, it would be feasible to develop and test a comprehensive measure of EOC for adolescents in LMICs.
