Case-Based Learning

Hormonal contraception: pills, patches & rings

Module summary

This case-based module uses the latest evidence to offer a comprehensive guide to the management of patients requesting the pill for contraception, as well as the use of the pill, patch or ring for non-contraceptive benefits in specific patient groups.

Learning objectives

To update you on:

  • Quick-starting.
  • Differences between progestogen-only and combined pills.
  • Contraindications.
  • Non-contraceptive benefits of hormonal contraception.
  • Which methods may suit which patients best.

In this interactive module, you will learn as you work through real-life primary care patient scenarios. You will be assessed before starting the module and again at the end, to gauge how your knowledge has improved.

You don’t have to complete the whole module in one sitting. You can break off at any point mid-module and pick up again where you left off by pressing the Resume Module button alongside the module title in your Pulse Learning CPD log.
