e-Learning | Combined hormonal contraception guidelines from FSRH

This is an update from the FSRH on the use of combined hormonal contraception (CHC). There are a couple of elements in here that are new. I shall list these, then give the check-list of what they think we should be covering in the initial consultation.

For me, the biggest single learning point was that we don’t have to bring a woman back at 3m after initiation of CHC. Annual follow up is fine and this follow up doesn’t have to be face to face (see below for more details on this).

A really useful aspect of this guideline is that there are numerous tables which summarise starting and switching routines, efficacy of various contraceptive methods etc. The appendix also contains a list of all the UKMEC criteria for CHC, which is very useful. One to keep a link to on your desktop maybe…

Things that are new, or are emphasised more in this update.

Assessing patients for suitability.

"A must-have for any GP locum.

I have used NASGP website since I started locuming three years ago. It caters for all my locum needs, and I found LocumDeck particularly useful for bookings and invoicing. The automatically-generated invoices and pension forms save me countless hours of admin time every month, and the recently introduced e-signed forms are brilliant.

The assistance I have received has always been quick and helpful. The forums and updates have also kept me in the loop with important issues which may affect my practice.

I cannot recommend this website enough. "
