dc.description.abstractENGLISH ABSTRACT: The objective of the present study is to investigate the effect of skills training on knowledge and attitudes of post-placental intra-uterine device (PPIUD) use, including the uptake thereof, and suggest training proposals. In-service skills training, alongside departmental protocol implementation, on PPIUD insertions were offered to healthcare professionals at Tygerberg Hospital, South Africa. Training was based on The postpartum intrauterine device. A training course for service providers, participant handbook from EngenderHealth (New York, NY, USA). Participants completed a questionnaire at enrolment and after 6 months to assess their knowledge and attitude towards PPIUD use. Most participants reported having the necessary skills to fulfil their family planning responsibilities (P<0.01), defined by their own perceived ability, and also reported that they could apply what they learnt (P<0.01). Most health care providers recommended IUDs to post-partum women (P=0.03), especially those who desire no more children (P=0.05), resulting in more participants providing IUDs (P=0.03) that could be attributed to the increased availability of reference material, i.e. training materials (P=0.02) and protocols (P=0.02). In conclusion, in-service PPIUD skills training guided by local protocol implementation resulted in an improvement of self-reported competency, counselling and PPIUD insertion. Repeated training with adequate supervision is imperative.en_ZA
