Intrauterine Contraception (IUC) Insertion Preceptorship
Unintended pregnancies can be prevented with effective contraception options, including intrauterine contraception (IUC). This online course provides information on how to initiate the conversation about IUC, and maintain positive communication with patients throughout and post-procedure. With four in-depth modules, the course provides a review of the practical skills and knowledge required for practitioners who would like to develop or build on their expertise for insertion of IUC options. Practitioners will also learn how to manage the care of women who are using IUC including reducing or preventing discomfort and pain, and addressing any complications such as a lost string, occurrence of pelvic inflammatory disease or IUC expulsion.
The preceptorship component of this program is optional. If you wish to be paired with a preceptor for hands-on training (includes a minimum of 5 live IUD insertions), please email us at [email protected] and we will match you with a preceptor in your area. All preceptorships must be arranged through the SOGC after completion of the online modules.
This preceptorship program is supported by an educational grant from Bayer.
