The author developed an educational brochure that compared two FDA-approved IUDs in the United States along with a flow sheet that provided information about insurance coverage. The flow sheet was designed to aid the nursing staff in obtaining optimal financial compensation for the IUD placement procedure. The FORCAST test and the Center for Disease Control publication "Simply Put" was used to obtain the readability level for this project. An appropriate readability level for the patients was established. The brochure and flow sheet were given to the rural Federally Qualified Health Center to be implemented as desired.
