Midwifery Contraceptive Champion Training
Becoming a Contraceptive Champion means that you will take the lead in your area for encouraging and facilitating uptake of contraception before postnatal women go home from hospital or in the community setting following discharge . As a ‘Champion’ you will able to use PGDs to administer postnatal contraception and to fit contraceptive implants.
The training is quite time consuming but hopefully interesting. We would hope you can complete this within 3 months.
The Training stages are outlined below:
You then complete selected modules within the programme ‘Sexual and Reproductive Health e-SRH’
There are 10 hours of time back available towards this but some work will need to be done in your own time as it can take about 20 -30 hours depending on how familiar you are with the topic.
Once you feel ready you take the EKA (online Knowledge Assessment)
The assessment takes 1hour 45 minutes and must be completed in a single sitting. A successful completion of the eKA will provide an eKA Pass Certificate.
Practical sessions are then arranged at Chalmers Centre on postnatal contraception PGDs, model arm training for implants and live implant training. Usually two half day sessions is enough. More can be arranged if needed.
