112919 - Advanced Workshop of Intrauterine Systems

  • : Online

This workshop is a practical introduction to performing IUS insertions and removals. Learn a step by step guide to the procedure, patient counselling techniques, interactive case studies and the opportunity to practice on simulated models. Further clinical training is available for GPs who attend this course.

Relevance to General Practice

Barriers to prescribing IUCDs create challenges for women in accessing all available contraceptive options. Potential solutions to increase IUCD uptake might include local directories of GP inserters and targeted promotion of IUCD use. Increased GP training is necessary to expand the number of current GP inserters.

Some 83% to 88% of women used the contraceptive device for at least 12 months. Obstetrician-gynecologists were the providers who most frequently inserted the devices. The frequency of ENG implants increased fivefold in the first 4 years of their availability compared with stable IUD insertion rates over the same period, a trend the authors say ‘highlight{s} the need to offer further education to both physicians and patients on the safety of prescribing modern IUDs to nulliparous women.’
