Posted on: March 16th, 2022 by Louise Garrahan No Comments

Health Education England elearning for healthcare (HEE elfh) has worked in partnership with the British Association for Sexual Health and HIV (BASSHH), the Royal College of Physicians, the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Glasgow and the Royal College of Physicians of Edinburgh to develop a new elearning session for the Sexual Health and HIV programme.

The resource – Diagnosing Mycoplasma Genitalium – is aimed at doctors and nurses specialising in sexually transmitted infections and non-specialists who are completing specific additional training in this area. The session focuses on the use of tests to diagnose this increasingly recognised sexually transmitted infection.

On completion of the resource, which takes approximately 20 minutes to complete, learners will be able to explain the epidemiology of Mycoplasma genitalium and know when and how to test for it.

The Sexual Health and HIV programme features more than 140 resources which have been widely used by more than 27,000 colleagues. It provides the knowledge framework for healthcare professionals treating and supporting people with sexually transmitted infections, including HIV, and related conditions.
