Through case studies, presentations, group discussion and online learning the Contraception Essentials in Primary Care course will increase primary care providers’ knowledge and confidence in discussing the benefits of Long-Acting Reversible Contraception (LARC) to reduce the incidence of unintended pregnancy amongst their patient population. This course will be particularly relevant for, but not limited to, general practitioners, nurse practitioners, and practice nurses working in primary care settings.

Learning Objectives:

It is expected that after completing the course, attendees will be able to:

  • Discuss available contraceptive methods’ safety, efficacy, and side effects. 
  • Implement a contraception consultation framework that demonstrates patient-centred shared decision-making.
  • Outline common issues and side effects that arise in contraceptive care. 
  • Propose strategies for breaking down barriers to contraception access. 

Target Audience

GPs, Nurses, Nurse Practitioners, Midwives, and Practice Nurses working in primary care settings.
