Contraceptive Implant Theory Workshop

Dates Offered

21st August 20244:00 pm to 6:00 pm

3rd October 20246:30 pm to 8:30 pm

The contraceptive implant offers the convenience of highly effective contraceptive protection for three years. The insertion and removal techniques are easy to learn, but to minimise possible complications it is important that they are done correctly.

The SHQ contraceptive implant theory workshop lays the foundations to become skilled in providing contraceptive implant services. To become a competent inserter after completion of the workshop, several insertions and removals should be performed under supervision by a competent inserter, ideally within the health professional’s own workplace.

SHQ contraceptive implant theory workshop covers:

  • Issues to cover during counselling about contraceptive implant use.
  • Benefits, risks and contraindications to use of contraceptive implants .
  • Insertion and removal techniques, including practice insertions and removals with simulation arms.

Each workshop can last up to 2.5 hours depending on attendance numbers.

We can provide this training as a webinar to your staff if you have sufficient numbers. Please contact the clinical education coordinator on 6164 7972 to enquire about this option.
