Independent Study: Inserting LARC Immediately After Childbirth

The 2013 Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's (CDC) U.S. Selected Practice Recommendations for Contraceptive Use recommends offering intrauterine and subdermal contraception to patients immediately after childbirth as part of a full range of contraceptive options. This course addresses the indications for insertion of intrauterine and subdermal contraception immediately following childbirth. Participants will view a video demonstration showcasing correct postpartum IUD (PPIUD) insertion technique. They will learn best practices for insertion and managing complications.

Target Audience
This course is designed for clinical providers, registered nurses, counselors, and administrative staff who work in either prenatal care or labor and delivery settings. Participants should have previous knowledge about LARC insertion in patients who are not postpartum.
