- E-learning contraception
- Contraception training (theory and skill)
- In vivo training
The e-learning Tailored contraceptive advice (AVM) and the Contraception Skills Training of Titus Health Care have been approved by the KNOV as steps in preparation for the in vivo training in placing spirals. For midwives graduated from 2017 onwards, the first two steps are integrated into the curriculum of the study programme. If you take the in vivo training within three years of graduation, you are competent to place spirals. Note: Have you already graduated for more than three years? Then you need to follow all three steps to become competent. More information can be found on the website of the KNOV.
