The Abortion Self-Efficacy Scale
The Abortion Self-Efficacy Scale (ASES) is a 15-item tool designed to measure abortion self-efficacy at the individual and community level. The tool can be used as part of formative research to inform the design, content and messaging of interventions intended to increase abortion self-efficacy. It can also be used to measure changes in abortion self-efficacy over time. Additionally, ASES scores can be utilized to understand factors associated with abortion self-efficacy.
