Clinical Procedures Workshops

Insertions and Removals of IUDs and Contraceptive Implants With Online Module: Beyond the Fundamentals

The workshop will include an interactive didactic session on challenges and complexities of IUD and implant insertions and removals, with pictures and strategies for approaching these problems. Then, the hands on session will involve practicing techniques, using alligator forceps, thread retrievers, manual vacuum aspirators, vasectomy forceps, etc. This workshop will benefit intermediate and advanced learners.

From attending this workshop, you will be able to:

  • Become comfortable handling the instruments and devices associated with IUD and implant insertions and removals.
  • Develop strategies for implementation of practice changes needed in order to offer LARC in their office settings.
  • Counsel women about LARC in a non-biased, non-judgmental format, providing evidence-based information in a way that builds trust through shared decision making regarding contraceptive choices.
