Activis provides on-site Liletta insertion training. A representative from Activis will come with demonstration kits for providers to practice and for training purposes. The demonstration kits also come with insertion instructions. There is no specific allotment of time needed for training. In fact, Actavis says roughly 10 minutes is all that’s needed to demonstrate and train a physician on inserting Liletta, depending on their level of experience with IUDs. It may take a bit longer if a provider does not have any experience inserting IUDs. Training consists of explaining the different parts of the device and demonstrating how to use.
