The Training Resource Package for Family Planning: Intrauterine Devices (IUDs)

The Training Resource Package for Family Planning (TRP) contains curriculum components and tools needed to design, implement, and evaluate training. It offers essential resources for family planning (FP) and reproductive health trainers, supervisors, and program managers. The entire package is designed to support up-to-date training on family planning and reproductive health.

This module for IUDs is designed for the providers in developing countries who most often are tasked with providing FP services—primarily nurses and nurse-midwives, as well as primary care physicians—and assume trainees will have at minimum a nurse’s level of clinical training.

It is a complete package of learning resources needed to address the learning objectives of the module, including:

  • a session plan,
  • PowerPoint presentations, and
  • accompanying activities and resources.

The module is designed for generic groups of health workers. The IUD module materials should be tailored and adapted according to the education and training background and learning needs of the identified trainees.

The TRP was developed using evidence-based technical information from World Health Organization (WHO) publications.
