Course Outline

The Contraceptive Implant (Implanon NXT) Training for Doctors is an interactive session, incorporating theoretical instruction and simulated practical application. 

Participants will:

  • engage with theory training regarding counselling and assessment prior to inserting the contraceptive implant 
  • develop an understanding of administration of local anaesthetic, insertion and removal procedures, and management of complications
  • demonstrate practical skills with simulated training on model arms 
  • learn about the management of complications and bleeding changes with Long Acting Reversible Contraceptives
