147554 - An updated guide to contraception. Part 2: Long-acting reversible methods

  • : Online

 

This free online learning module provides 15 clinical questions and immediate answers about an original peer-reviewed article written for GPs.

Relevance to General Practice

This second module in a three-part series on contraception covers long-acting reversible methods – hormonal and copper-bearing intrauterine devices and the etonogestrel implant – which are associated with a lower risk of unintended pregnancy than shorter-acting contraceptive methods. The depot medroxyprogesterone acetate injection has lower typical-use efficacy and is not immediately reversible but remains important for some women and is also included.

Learning outcomes
  • Identify situations in which to offer a long-acting reversible contraceptive (LARC)
  • Counsel women about the mechanisms of action and effectiveness of LARCs LARCs and depot medroxyprogesterone acetate (DMPA)
  • Prescribe a LARC or DPMA
  • Promote adherence among women using DMPA for contraception
