End Date
Time / Duration
3.5 Hours

This interactive online course provides theoretical and live-online simulated training in the insertion and removal of the contraceptive implant Implanon NXT® and provides product knowledge and patient counselling. Implanon NXT® distance education consists of approximately 2.5 hours self-paced, online theoretical pre-reading and approximately 1 hour of small group, live-online simulation practice via Zoom webinar.


Course overview

The self-paced, online pre-reading (which must be completed prior to the webinar session) covers the following topics:

  • Long Acting Reversible Contraceptives (LARC)
  • Composition and mechanism of action
  • Efficacy
  • Side effects, including bleeding patterns and guidance of management
  • Patient suitability, contraindications, and medication interactions
  • Patient consent
  • Timing of initiation of contraception
  • Insertion procedure, including anatomical considerations
  • Removal procedure
  • Reinsertion procedure
  • Post-procedure patient advice
  • Advice for complex implants, such as deeply inserted implants



The kit does not include a scalpel – this must be provided by participant (11 blade recommended).

The kit includes:

  • Model training arm

  • Mobile phone tripod
  • Instructions

  • Reply-paid parcel bag for the return of the kit to True

For Nurses and Midwives:


Participants are to complete a short online quiz with 100% pass mark required. The course includes feedback from an Implanon NXT® clinical educator on simulation procedure technique but does not include a formal competency assessment.

Course outcomes:
