ADVOCATE is an accredited continuing educational program on intrauterine contraception for primary care. The program investigates the opportunities and challenges of using intrauterine contraception (IUC), and provides a comprehensive analysis of appropriate patient selection, insertion techniques and limited potential for infection. The program consists of 4 modules, each dealing with a specific and important aspect of the use of intrauterine contraception. The program is practical and case-based. Each case scenario presents a realistic patient profile that is addressed through key discussion points with supporting evidence, concluding in expert committee recommendations. The overall program objectives are as follows:

    • Evaluate the comparative effectiveness of commonly used methods of contraception.
    • Distinguish between copper and hormonal intrauterine contraception and their respective mechanisms of action.
    • Identify contraceptive and non-contraceptive benefits and risks of intrauterine contraception.
    • Select appropriate candidates for intrauterine contraception.

Another patient profile is presented and participants are encouraged to assess the suitability of the patient and are also guided through a step-by-step technique for appropriate insertion of intrauterine contraceptive.

    available

    "Understanding the Misunderstood Relationship Between Pelvic Inflammatory Disease (PID) and Intrauterine Contraception" goes through an analysis of the small potential for infection with the use of intrauterine contraception, and risk factors, sequelae and treatment for pelvic inflammatory disease. Participants are also presented with information on reducing the risk for potential PID when choosing intrauterine contraception for their patients.
