The first is 'Inserting and removing subdermal contraceptive implants - Accreditation and training guidance for nurses.'

It is aimed at practitioners who work at a higher or specialist level within the area of sexual and reproductive healthcare. It provides information on how to acquire the clinical skills needed to insert and remove contraceptive implants.

The other is 'Intrauterine Techniques - RCN accreditation and training guidance for nurses and midwives'.

It provides information on acquiring the clinical skills needed to fit IUDs in sexual health clinics and sets out the training implications of taking on this extra work.
