Intrauterine devices (IUDs) and contraceptive implants, or long-acting reversible contraception (LARC), are the most effective forms of reversible contraceptives. ACOG District II family planning experts have come together to develop relevant clinical education on the utilization of LARC methods in eligible patients, especially in the immediate postpartum period.
While LARC utilization is slowly increasing, it is imperative to counsel patients on their full range of contraceptive options and help them choose the method that is right for them. In ACOG District II’s clinical video you will find information on:
- LARC methods
- Clinical practice considerations
- Insertion considerations
- System and reimbursement barriers
- Complex case studies to test your knowledge
For more information on ACOG District II’s LARC education, please contact Kelly Gilchrist, Manager, Executive Office/Medical Education.
The American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG), District II presents these educational videos as part of its LARC initiative. To learn more about this project and ACOG District II’s other medical education initiatives, please visit www.acogny.org.
