185304 - Contraceptive Implant (Implanon NXT) Insertion & Removal Training

  • : Online

This interactive course aims to provide knowledge of the contraceptive implant in the context of long-acting reversible contraception (LARC), including patient counselling to maximise tolerability. Theoretical and simulated supervised training in the insertion and removal of the contraceptive implant (Implanon NXT) will occur.

Relevance to General Practice

Long-acting reversible contraception (LARC) is highly effective and has the potential to reduce unintended pregnancy and abortion rates. General practitioners are ideally placed to counsel clients regarding LARC use. The contraceptive implant (Implanon NXT) requires training to ensure effective counselling, including understanding and conveying benefits, risks, and complications. Hands-on training is essential to ensure safe and appropriate insertion and removal of the implant.
