Sexual and Reproductive Health for Health Visitors e-learning programme now available

Posted on: March 24th, 2021 by Louise Garrahan No Comments

A new e-learning programme designed to raise awareness of health visitors’ important role in promoting sexual and reproductive health at every contact with pregnant women, partners and parents is now available on Health Education England’s e-Learning for Healthcare (HEE e-LfH) Hub.

The Sexual and Reproductive Health for Health Visitors programme has been created by The Institute of Health Visiting and includes 4 sections to support health visitors with promoting sexual and reproductive health to all families they work with, focusing on:

  • what is sexual and reproductive health and why is it important?
  • meaningful conversations
  • sexual and reproductive health within health visiting practice

The sessions, which are funded by the Public Health England Reproductive Health, Sexual Health and HIV Innovation Fund, each take approximately 15 to 20 minutes to complete and learners will enhance their skills in several areas including:

  • understanding the ability to recognise the need to promote sexual and reproductive health
  • appreciating the inequalities associated with specific populations/diverse groups
  • understanding a framework to support sexual, reproductive and preconception health conversations

For more information and to access the programme, please visit the Sexual and Reproductive Health for Health Visitors programme page.

As part of this programme learners will first complete the free All Our Health: Sexual and Reproductive Health and HIV e-learning.

Learners may also find these additional resources via e-LfH useful:

  • Contraceptive needs of women following pregnancy
  • Domestic violence and abuse (DVA)
  • Female genital mutilation (FGM)
  • Perinatal mental health
  • Supporting a smokefree pregnancy and smokefree families (SCP)
e-LfH is a Health Education England Programme in partnership with the NHS and Professional Bodies
