New Sexual and Reproductive Health e-learning courses now available

Louise Garrahan, 14 October 2020

Health Education England elearning for healthcare (HEE elfh) has worked with the Faculty of Sexual and Reproductive Health (FRSH) to develop 30 new resources covering a host of topics including anatomy, contraception, sexually transmitted infections and early pregnancy.

The newly updated programme is aimed at a range of healthcare professionals, including nurses and midwives, to gain the necessary knowledge to successfully support patients with their sexual reproductive needs. It also complements the redesigned FSRH Diploma, which is planned to open for applications in October 2020, as well as other FRSH qualifications.

Each course is interactive and readily accessible anywhere at any time. Learners can access information, read articles, undertake self-assessments, view video clips and animation, along with real-life case studies to support their learning.

The courses range from 20-30 minutes in duration and cover the following topics:

  • Basic anatomy and physiology
  • Health history and risk assessment
  • Contraceptive choices
  • Emergency contraception
  • Contraception: managing side-effects and complications of use
  • Planning pregnancy
  • Unintended pregnancy and abortion
  • Early pregnancy
  • Sexually transmitted infections (STIs)
  • SRH needs of specific groups
  • Adult and child/young person safeguarding
  • Psychosexual medicine
  • Cervical screening.

Learners can also use FSRH guidance, where possible, to supplement their learning with the programme.
