One-day training covering contraception and STIs for primary care practitioners
SRH Essentials is an interactive one-day course with scenario based learning, presentations, time for discussion, questions and role play. The course provides a solid foundation for those who see patients with sexual and reproductive health needs but who have had little or no formal SRH training, or provides a useful update for those with more experience. Participants acquire the skills to consult patients knowledgeably and confidently on contraception, STI testing and emergency contraception.
Designed by the Faculty of Sexual and Reproductive Healthcare, SRH Essentials is aimed specifically for healthcare practitioners working in primary care settings.
SRH Essentials is open to anyone with a professional registration (GMC, NMC, GPhC, PAMVR or HCPC) including:
- Physicians Associates
- Other Healthcare Professionals working in Primary Care
On completion of SRH Essentials, participants will have the skills and confidence to:
- Consult with patients about their sexual and reproductive healthcare needs
- Recommend an appropriate method of emergency contraception
- Assess when a patient is at risk of pregnancy
- Assess when a patient needs emergency contraception and what method can be recommended safely
- Review the COC, POP and injection contraceptive methods
- Carry out sexual health risk assessments
- Identify when a patient is at risk of STIs
The course is valid for CPD points but not for recertification of the DFSRH.
To register you must have a GMC, NMC, GPhC, PAMVR or HCPC number.
