Case-Based Learning


Module summary

This case-based module uses the latest evidence to offer a comprehensive guide to the management of patients requiring LARC, as well as advice regarding the use of these methods for non-contraceptive benefits in specific patient groups.

Learning objectives

To update you on:

  • The importance of promoting LARC
  • The detailed counselling required to help women chose between LARC methods
  • Factors to consider before initiating LARC
  • The 2015 FSRH guidelines on intrauterine contraception
  • Risks and benefits of the different methods
  • Contraindications
  • Non-contraceptive benefits

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.
