The Future of Contraception
From dialogue with Lecturers, clinical colleagues and students there is a distinct lack of awareness regarding the different methods of contraception available to mothers and/or their partners following childbirth. Our undergraduate student Midwives only receive a half day within their programme.
This study day has been developed with the national drive to reduce unintended pregnancy in mind, helping to improve access to LARC by public health.
There have been some changes announced by the Faculty of Sexual & Reproductive Healthcare in Jan 2014 which now provide the opportunity for healthcare professionals including midwives and health visitors to gain a letter of competence in the insertion and removal of contraceptive implants and intra-uterine techniques. A presentation will be delivered on the day in reflect these changes.

The programme will support maternal choices regarding their preferred method of contraception and will help support appropriate and efficient access to services.
The company have agreed to sponsor a study day at this University and will inform delegates about new innovations for practice, including the new on line module and the chance to become a qualified and certified contraceptive implant or coil fitter as part of the Midwifery role.
There will be a presentation on the day to reflect the changes announced by the faculty of Sexual and Reproductive Healthcare and how you can access training .
