January 01, 2022 12:00 AM - September 30, 2022 12:00 AM
Does your family planning program have a provider who needs IUD insertion and removal training? The New York State Family Planning Training Center is excited to again be able to offer FREE, completely virtual IUD insertion and removal training for Family Planning Program staff through a partnership with the National Clinical Training Center for Family Planning.
About the training: The National Clinical Training Center for Family Planning offers a 4-hour training that consists of two portions. The virtual IUD Insertion and Removal portion of the training lasts 90 minutes. The trainers will ship IUD demo kits and pelvic model right to your door. You will receive a link to the online pre-work. The live training will include a brief review followed by virtual hands-on practice. The second portion of the training includes 2.5 hours of LARC Challenging Cases where participants will explore strategies to reduce the number of failed IUD placements, streamline implant removal and minimize the risk of adverse events with placement and removal of LARC methods. If interested, you must register for both portions of the training on the same day.
Clinical providers are eligible to sign up if they 1) work in a New York State Department of Health-funded Family Planning Program and 2) may legally insert IUDs in New York State. Several dates are available. A limited number of seats are available, so register soon to secure your seat.
