Implementing Quality Family Planning, or IQFP, provides clinic staff with the knowledge and skills they need to engage with family planning clients, apply client-centered care, and share evidence-based information on a wide range of contraceptive methods.
The IQFP Toolkits are comprehensive curricula to be used by facilitators familiar with the QFP guidelines to train clinical staff or prescribers.
IQFP Curriculum (Standard) is for experienced staff or clinicians to train non-prescribing staff, including registered nurses and health educators. The IQFP Curriculum consists of two modules: (1) Contraception Overview and (2) Client-Centered Counseling in the Family Planning Setting
IQFP-RX Curriculum (IQFP For Prescribers) is for experienced clinicians to train other clinicians and includes additional in-depth information on prescribing and management. The IQFP-RX Curriculum consists of three modules: (1) Contraception Overview (2) Client-Centered Counseling in the Family Planning Setting (3) Advanced Contraception
The Toolkit Tour below gives an introduction to the Implementing Quality Family Planning (IQFP) Curriculum, a walkthrough of the toolkits, and information on how to customize your training using the toolkits.
Founded as the National Clinical Training Center for Family Planning (NCTCFP) in 2006, we changed our name to the Clinical Training Center for Sexual and Reproductive Health (CTC-SRH) in 2023. We have been funded by the Office of Population Affairs at the Department of Health and Human Services since inception and remain the primary source of clinical training for those providing sexual and reproductive health care in federally-funded settings.
Having served the Title X network for nearly two decades, our team of clinical experts recognized that the term “family planning” falls short of describing the client-centered and inclusive sexual and reproductive health services we offer, especially in an increasingly urgent and rapidly shifting healthcare landscape.
The newly-renamed Clinical Training Center for Sexual and Reproductive Health (CTC-SRH) continues to provide evidence-based clinical training and resources to healthcare providers in Title X settings through increased healthcare quality, equity, and access.
