Sexual and Reproductive Healthcare elearning sessions now updated

Posted on: December 2nd, 2021 by Louise Garrahan No Comments

Health Education England elearning for Healthcare (HEE elfh) has worked with the Faculty of Sexual and Reproductive Health (FSRH) to update 2 existing sessions in the Sexual and Reproductive Healthcare elearning programme.

The programme launched in September 2020 with 30 new sessions covering a host of topics including anatomy, contraception, sexually transmitted infections and early pregnancy.

Each resource is aimed at a range of healthcare professionals, particularly those working in nursing and midwifery, to help them gain the necessary knowledge to successfully support patients with their sexual reproductive needs.

Sessions 17 and 18 have now been renamed 14 and 15 with new content added, as detailed below. The sessions are required for taking FSRH’s Letter of Competence (LoC) qualifications:

  • Session 14: Additional Training in Subdermal Implants (SDIs). The resource outlines the advantages and disadvantages of an SDI and details the fitting and removal of SDIs, as well as any complications. It also explores the possible side effects and management of SDIs, including the use of local anaesthetics.
  • Session 15: Additional Training in Intrauterine Techniques (IUT). This session provides evidence-based recommendations and good practice points on the insertion of intrauterine contraception (IUC) and techniques used within the UK.

Each resource within the programme is interactive and readily accessible anywhere at any time. Learners can access information, undertake self-assessments and view video clips, animation and real-life case studies to support their learning.

Healthcare professionals who have already completed sessions 17 and 18 have a 6-month grace period until 29 May 2022, which means these sessions will still be accepted as evidence supporting FSRH LoC application submissions made during this period. After 29 May 2022, sessions 17 and 18 will no longer be accepted and the new sessions must be completed.
