Training Resource Package for Family Planning: Combined Oral Contraceptives (COCs)
This module on Combined Oral Contraceptives (COCs) 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. Although the module can be used for Community Health Workers (CHWs), they would need basic literacy skills.
Designed to actively involve the trainees in the learning process, sessions include:
- PowerPoint presentations,
- simulation skills practice in the form of roleplays,
- case studies and practice, and
- using objective competency-based skills checklists.
