A consistent theme in the clinics at Family Planning Tasmania (FPT) is trying to increase access to LARCs (Long Acting Reversible Contraception) for women.

FPT has now developed its own Implanon training material and will be facilitating Implanon training sessions for GPs and practice nurses in Hobart and Launceston in the next 2 months.

It is also really encouraging to see the number of women presenting for IUD (Intra-Uterine Device) insertions increasing in the Launceston and Burnie clinics, and we are hopeful that those numbers will increase even further now that Judy Brown, the LARC health promotion officer, has joined the team in Burnie.
