e-learning for Sexual & Reproductive Healthcare is launched

Frankie, 25 January 2010

e-SRH, an exciting and flexible elearning resource for sexual and reproductive healthcare training, was officially launched on 20 January 2010.

Developed by the Faculty of Sexual & Reproductive Healthcare (FSRH) in partnership with elearning for healthcare (elfh), e-SRH forms the initial part of the training for the new FSRH diploma. It will support healthcare professionals in acquiring the relevant knowledge and competences needed for delivering sexual and reproductive healthcare (SRH) and some areas of enhanced care.

The elearning consists of 18 modules made up of over 50 sessions written by clinical experts working in both general practice and specialist services. The sessions contain interactive multimedia, such as video clips and animation, along with real-life case studies to help learners understand the views of both patients and professionals.

Registration for e-SRH is now available free of charge via the elfh website (https://www.e-lfh.org.uk/programmes/sexual-and-reproductive-healthcare) for doctors, nurses and other healthcare professionals in the UK.

The launch of e-SRH took place at a special event to celebrate the FSRH’s new specialty of Community Sexual and Reproductive Health, and the redesign of the Diploma of the FSRH.

The event was opened by Professor Arulkumaran, President of the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists (RCOG), and speeches were also given by Baroness Joyce Gould and Dr Christine Robinson, President of the FSRH.

Dr Robinson said:

“The new diploma is considered to be the gold standard of training for contraception and sexual and reproductive health. With the development of this new innovative resource, e-SRH, doctors will now have more convenient access to the theoretical component of the diploma before embarking upon the practical training competences.”

Attendees, including representatives from the RCOG, FSRH and the British Medical Association, were also invited to view some of the sample e-SRH sessions.
