Practical skills refresher course
This course is for doctors and nurses with letters of competence in either sub-dermal implants or intrauterine techniques or both who are keen to refresh their skills and build their confidence to deliver these services.

The course includes practice on training models and then 1:1 coaching for up to six clinics (24 patients) as well as ongoing support thereafter for both forms of LARC [£299]. If you wish to just focus on one LARC method then it will be for three clinics (12 patients) [£150].
