About the Sexual and Reproductive Healthcare programme

e-SRH, e-learning for Sexual & Reproductive Healthcare, has been developed by the Faculty of Sexual & Reproductive Healthcare (FSRH) in partnership with Health Education England e-Learning for Healthcare (e-LfH).

e-SRH supports healthcare professionals in acquiring the relevant knowledge and competences needed for delivering sexual and reproductive healthcare and some areas of enhanced care.

e-SRH may be used for the knowledge component for the new Diploma of the Faculty of Sexual & Reproductive Healthcare (DFSRH and NDFSRH) and the Letters of Competence in Subdermal Implants and Intrauterine Techniques. Information on the Diploma is accessible from the FSRH website: www.fsrh.org.

e-SRH is suitable for doctors and nurses, and will be of interest to other healthcare professionals such as pharmacists.

Sexual and Reproductive Healthcare

  • “e-SRH has the potential to reach several thousand clinicians delivering direct sexual health care in a number of different clinical areas.”

    Dr Chris Wilkinson - President, Faculty of Sexual and Reproductive Healthcare

Curriculum development

The comprehensive curriculum for e-SRH was developed to reflect the level of knowledge and competence required by a doctor or nurse delivering non-specialist sexual and reproductive healthcare in a community setting.

It includes:

  • Contraception
  • Sexually transmitted infections
  • Early pregnancy assessment and referral
  • Recognising psychosexual problems
  • The law relating to confidentiality, sexual activity and young people

Eighteen modules were originally developed for the project and were written by clinical experts working in both general practice and specialist services. The project now consists of sixteen modules and over 45 sessions.

The e-learning sessions incorporate exciting 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. The materials have been designed to be used on a standard laptop or PC via a broadband internet connection at home or in the workplace.
