81082 - IUD Insertion Training

  • : Online

IUD insertion training provides doctors with supervised clinical training for the insertion of copper and progestogen bearing IUDs.

Relevance to General Practice

Due to high demand for IUD insertions, women can experience long waiting times. To offer women more options FPQ deliver training to GPs throughout Qld, which results in more trained doctors able to provide IUDs and also reduces the impact on O&G departments. Having more trained GPs also widens, and provides more timely, access to long acting reversible contraceptive care and therefore potentially reduces the number of unplanned pregnacies.

Learning outcomes

  • Describe the differences, advantages and disadvantages between copper and hormonal IUDs
  • Demonstrate a commitment to standardized assessment, counselling and consent prior to IUD insertion
  • Demonstrate accurate bimanual pelvic assessment of uterine size, lie and position
  • Demonstrate confidence and competence in the insertion of various IUDs
