Simulators for intimate examination training in the developing world
Simulators for intimate examination training in the developing world
Context: Family planning clinic in urban India.
Objective: To assess the usefulness of a pelvic simulator for intimate examination and intrauterine device insertion training, and for enhancing reproductive education for women.
Design: Observational study using evaluation forms completed by staff, and focus group interviews with women and girls participating in sexual health education. Content analysis of interview material.
Results: Staff being trained in intimate examination found the simulator to be useful in increasing their level of skill. Participants in sexual health education reported an improved range and depth of knowledge following demonstrations with the simulator.
Conclusion: Where working and training conditions are crowded and lacking in privacy, inappropriate examination practices are likely to be propagated. Training for intimate examinations can be enhanced by the use of pelvic simulators.
