        The 4 lessons are as follows:
        Lesson 1: Overview of Contraception
        Data suggests that there are still a significant number of women in Ireland engaging in sexual activity on an occasional or regular basis, who do not use any or adequate contraception. This lesson highlights the role of GPs in informing women of the range of contraceptive options available to them.
        Lesson 2: Combined Hormonal Contraception
        This lesson focuses on combined hormonal contraception (CHC), and on the first-pill consultation in particular. Much of the information (particularly safety information), is relevant to all contraceptives which contain oestrogen-like compounds, such as the ring and the patch.
        Lesson 3: Progestogen-only Pill
        This lesson focuses on issues around progestogen-only pills (POPs), and references the Faculty of Sexual & Reproductive Health or FSRH guidelines on progestogen-only pills. Since all the other progestogen-only products are LARCs, they are addressed in detail in a separate LARC eLearning module, which can be accessed on ICGP Education.
        Lesson 4: Emergency Contraception
        Women requesting emergency contraception should be informed of all options available to them.  In Ireland currently, these are levonorgestrel and ulipristal acetate tablets, or a copper containing intrauterine device (IUCD).  This lesson outlines the issues around prescription & use of these options.
        MCQ Assessment & Certificate
        On completion of a short MCQ a record of completion (Certificate) can be printed for CPD purposes. .

The Medical Council has defined eight domains of good professional practice. These domains describe a framework of competencies applicable to all doctors across the continuum of professional development from formal medical education and training through to maintenance of professional competence. Since they describe the outcomes which doctors should strive to achieve, doctors should refer to these domains throughout the process of maintaining competence. In order to assist you in planning your professional competence, ICGP eLearning highlight the domains addressed in each module as set out below. 
NOTE: While a number of ICGP modules have a tight focus on one or two domains, most modules endeavour to address all domains to some degree (low, medium, high). This is clearly displayed in the diagram below:
