Training in family planning.
Br Med Bull. 1993 Jan; 49(1):237-44.BM

Abstract

In spite of extensive programmes for training in family planning and extensive services in contraception in the UK, the number of unplanned pregnancies has not decreased. On the contrary it is increasing. Medical graduates are now educated in methods of contraception. There is an extensive programme for postgraduates, regulated by the Joint Committee on Contraception (JCC), which is well integrated and co-ordinated. The provision of good training opportunities at a local level will be enhanced by the establishment of consultant posts in Reproductive Health/community Gynaecology and the development of higher training programmes to meet the projected expansion of these posts. They can play a role in education in reproductive health with respect to sexuality and personal relationships, as well as in the provision of family planning services and training to all reproductive health care professionals and teachers.
