Comprehensive IUD and Contraceptive Implant (LARC) Training

Offered by the Family Planning Access Care and Treatment (FPACT) Program

The training is suited both for providers who have never placed IUDs, as well as those who have experience with IUD insertions and removals, but who want to fine-tune their skills. The agenda includes information about patient method selection, counseling and consent, techniques for the use of instruments during IUD placement, and instruction in the insertion of each type of IUD currently available in the US.
