Evaluation of a Digital Hybrid Training Course on Hormonal IUD in Nigeria: A Mixed Methods Study

Provider trainings on new family planning (FP)
methods in Nigeria, such as the hormonal
intra-uterine device (IUD), are typically
conducted in-person using a combination of
didactic, classroom-based learning & practice
on models, followed by a practicum with live
clients. Replacing the didactic portion of
provider trainings with a digital curriculum has
the potential to effectively train providers on
new methods at a lower cost than in-person
approaches.

While digital provider trainings
are recommended as an enhancement to FP
high impact practices (HIPs), relatively little is
known about the feasibility, acceptability, &
costs of hybrid digital provider trainings in
Nigeria. With support from USAID and the Bill
& Melinda Gates Foundation, the Society for Family Health through its Research for
Scalable Solutions (R4S) Project & the
Learning about Expanded Access & Potential
of Hormonal IUD (LEAP) Project conducted a
mixed-methods evaluation of a hybrid digital
training for FP providers on the hormonal IUD.
