If you’re a medical professional looking to train in IUD and Sub Dermal Implants, we’d recommend the Faculty of Sexual & Reproductive Health’s Letter of Competence.
A Letter of Competence from the Faculty of Sexual & Reproductive Health allows doctors and nurses to training and gain experience in sub dermal implants (LoC SDI) and intra uterine techniques (LoC IUT) without first holding the Diploma of Sexual & Reproductive Healthcare.
They must demonstrate the evidence based knowledge, attitude and skills required to consult with a woman requesting contraception, and to appropriately provide intrauterine and sub-dermal implant insertion and removal methods and manage complications and side effects.
Letters of Competence in IUD / IUS & Sub Dermal Implant training are available to doctors and nurses. To start training you must have either a current Diploma of Faculty of Sexual & Reproductive Healthcare or have passed the FSRH on-line knowledge assessment (eKA). More information regarding the e-KA can be found on the Faculty’s website.
Available to: doctors and nurses
Cost: £75 per session (generally most people need between 2-4 sessions for each LoC)
Prerequisites: Candidates must have passed the Faculty’s online knowledge assessment (eKA) and online modules for IUD/IUS and/or Sub Dermal implant (these modules are found on the e-Learning for Healthcare website which you must register on). Once the candidate has successfully passed the eKA and completed the above modules, dates can be arranged to attend Sandyford IUD / Implant training clinics with a Faculty Registered Trainer to complete the practical clinical training.
