Illustrative Modules Session Plan - Levonorgestrel Intrauterine Devices (LNG-IUDs)

The session plan summarizes how the resources and documents in the module should be used to achieve the learning objectives. Each section of the session plan addresses a module topic, such as characteristics of the method or medical eligibility. The slides to be shown with each section and appropriate handouts are identified. The LNG-IUDs module is divided into five sessions:

Session I is on the characteristics of LNG-IUDs and includes key points for providers and clients, effectiveness, mechanism of action, health benefits of LNG-IUDs and side effects.
Session II contains information on who can and who cannot use LNG-IUDs, medical eligibility for the use of LNG-IUDs, and information on screening for contraceptive use.
Session III is on providing LNG-IUDs. It includes information on when women can start using an LNG-IUD, how an LNG-IUD is inserted and removed, counseling LNG-IUD users, correcting rumors and misconceptions, follow up visits, management of side effects, warning signs of complications, and problems that may require discontinuing the use of an LNG-IUD or switching to another method.
Session IV is on describing steps on how to safely insert and remove an LNG-IUD using a two-handed inserter and for preventing infection during insertion and removal. Participants practice inserting and removing the LNG-IUD on anatomical models. (This session is conducted as appropriate to the job description and scope of work of the participant)
