Posted on: November 11th, 2020 by Hannah Denness No Comments

Health Education England e-Learning for Healthcare (HEE e-LfH) has worked with the British Association for Sexual Health and HIV (BASHH) and the Royal College of Physicians to add new content to the Sexual Health and HIV programme (eHIV-STI).

A new session, HIV Pre-exposure Prophylaxis (PrEP), is now available as part of the e-learning programme. This has been timed to coincide with the roll out of routine PrEP in England. The e-learning is aimed at nursing and medical staff in sexual health services where PrEP is to be delivered and will cover all of the practical and clinical aspects of PrEP provision.

The eHIV-STI e-learning programme provides the knowledge framework for healthcare professionals treating and supporting people with sexually transmitted infections, including HIV, and related conditions. The e-learning is split across 17 modules and provides an extensive knowledge base for STIs and HIV.

New e-learning session added to Sexual Health and HIV programme

Posted on: October 10th, 2019 by Alex Drinkall No Comments

A new e-learning session on chemsex is now available as part of Health Education England e-Learning for Healthcare’s (HEE e-LfH) Sexual Health and HIV (eHIV-STI) programme.

Chemsex can be described as sex whilst under the influence of drugs that have been taken immediately before or during a sexual session. The most frequently reported drugs (referred to as ‘chems’) used are Mephedrone, GHB and Methamphetamine.

Problematic use of these ‘chems’ is increasingly being identified in UK sexual health clinics and is a risk factor for the acquisition of sexually transmitted infections, including HIV.

The e-learning’s lead authors Dr Andrew Tomkins, consultant in Sexual Health and HIV in Chester Sexual Health services, and Dr Chris Ward, consultant in Sexual Health and HIV at Manchester University NHS Foundation Trust, have worked with colleagues in Genitourinary Medicine and Addiction Psychiatry to develop the session which is available here.

eHIV-STI has been developed by the British Association for Sexual Health and HIV (BASHH), the Royal College of Physicians, The Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Glasgow and the Royal College of Physicians of Edinburgh in partnership with HEE e-LfH.

Further e-learning sessions on HIV Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis (PREP), Diagnosing Mycoplasma Genitalium, Transgender Sexual Health and Domestic Violence, are currently in development.

e-LfH is a Health Education England Programme in partnership with the NHS and Professional Bodies
