GET HELP FROM AN NTSP TRAINER

Did you know that nurse trainers are available to support your contraceptive implant service as part of the NEXPLANON® Training Support Programme (NTSP) and can provide accredited training to help you obtain a Letter of Competence (LoC) in subdermal implant techniques?

A team of fully-accredited, Faculty-approved nurse trainers can offer:

  • accredited practical training to obtain an FSRH LoC in subdermal implant techniques
  • training for conversions from local LoC to FSRH LoC
  • support and guidance for reaccreditation and the Online Theory Assessment process
  • in-practice or wider-scale education on LARCs
  • 1:1 ongoing post-training support
  • refresher training for lapsed fitters or those returning to fitting following a break or practice move, as well as confidence-building in complex removals
