This clinical attachment in True's Ipswich clinic provides clinicians with supervised clinical training with a True trainer for the insertion of copper and levonorgestrel intrauterine devices (IUDs) to ensure safe and effective practice. This training is by approved application only and requires full payment up-front. Unsuccessful applicants will be refunded in full.


Course overview:

Clinicians are required to be at a high level of training and experience to undertake IUD insertion training. At True, we believe IUD insertion is a procedure at the highest proficiency level of women’s health clinical practice.

This training consists of a 4 hour online, self-paced, theory component covering the following topics:

  • Different IUDs available in Australia
  • Medical eligibility criteria (MEC) for IUDs
  • Counselling patients on effectiveness, mode of action, advantages, disadvantages, and risks of IUDs
  • Appropriate investigations and timing for insertion
  • Insertion and removal techniques for different IUDs

The clinical attachment consists of 2 sessions, with each session approximately 4 hours in duration. The clinical session will commence with simulated training using a pelvic model, then 1 observed insertion, followed by at least 6 insertions under direct supervision. Training is recorded in a clinical portfolio.


Course Outcomes:

Upon successful completion of the course, participants will be awarded a Statement of Completion for IUD insertion training.

After completion of the course, it is recommended you perform at least 10 insertions each year to maintain your competence in this skill.  It is expected you will exercise due clinical judgement to ensure all procedures are performed within your scope of practice.
