Key message points
- Appreciation of human factors can provide useful insights into the reduction of risks through intuitive device design and the management of contributory factors in the environment.
- Risks of implants relate to the way in which devices are designed and used rather than to their pharmacological properties.
- The risks associated with the use of contraceptive implants include non-insertion and deep insertion
