The ‘Contraception for Practice Nurses’ course is designed for practice nurses. It equips them with the necessary skills and knowledge to assess and manage contraceptive services effectively.
The course will focus on evidence-based practices, adherence to national guidelines, and an overview of the different contraceptive methods including oral contraceptives and injectable contraceptives and when they are indicated. Participants will also gain a thorough understanding of alternative contraception methods, emergency contraception choices and knowledge of sexually transmitted infections (STIs).
Exploring health promotion, patient-centred care and legal issues, participants will develop expertise conducting contraception consultations, history taking, and comprehensive assessments. This will enable them to guide patients in making informed decisions about contraceptive choices, considering individual preferences and cultural and social needs. Through practical case studies and discussions on challenging scenarios, participants will refine their skills, ensuring they are well-prepared to address barriers to accessing contraception and uphold confidentiality, consent, and safeguarding principles in their practice.
