In Practice GP IUD Insertion Training
This training is designed for GPs and GP registrars who already have a special interest and competence in Women’s Health, Contraception and LARC. The Iris Education model of IUD training involves a theoretical component provided at the outset of training to the trainee (by mail and phone discussion) followed by one-on-one training in the practical aspects of IUD insertion in the GP's own clinical setting.
The training is conducted either over two 3-4 hour sessions or one full day of training. Once completed, the GP is awarded the "Certificate of Completion of IUD Insertion Training" to provide to their Medical Indemnifier before they commence their IUD practice. This training is accredited with the RACGP and attracts 40 CPD Accredited Activity QI&CPD points. IUD Insertion Training is also accredited with ACRRM for PDP units: 11 Educational activity, 1 Performance review.
Training is able to be conducted anywhere in QLD, dependent on the Training Practice covering the cost of travel and accommodation for the Iris Education trainer.
Participation in this training requires the GP learner to recruit up to 8 of their own patients who are requesting an IUD. The training experience involves the GP inserting IUDs for these patients in their own clinical setting under the one-on-one supervision of the Iris Education IUD Trainer.
The GP's nurse assistant's involvement in this training is critical.
As well as enabling you to better serve your local medical community by becoming an IUD provider, this training provides comprehensive resources and access to follow up from clinical experts in the field. Training In-Practice saves you time and money.
The fee for this training is $2500.00 (plus GST) Travel costs of the trainer ($50.00 per hour) are to be met by the Practice or trainee. Such costs are incurred if the Iris Trainer needs to travel more than 30 minutes from the Brisbane CBD, and if required, flights and accommodation. Contact Iris Education for an exact costing at your location. It is expected that 50% of the fee will be paid before commencement of the training, with the remainder paid on completion. When considering the cost of training be aware that the performance of the 8 IUD training insertions involved attracts approximately $1000.00 in Medicare payments for your Practice
