Posted on: August 6th, 2021 by Leanne Hargreaves No Comments

Health Education England elearning for healthcare (HEE elfh) 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, Sexual and Reproductive Healthcare for Trans, Non-binary and Intersex People, is now available as part of the elearning programme. This session aims to aid understanding of the diversity of gender identity and support sexual health professionals to facilitate effective sexual and reproductive healthcare for trans, non-binary, and intersex people.

By the end of this session learners will be able to:

  • describe different gender identities and the need to have inclusive healthcare provision within an integrated sexual health service
  • list important areas of health promotion for trans and non-binary service users
  • discuss ways to take a non-judgemental sexual and reproductive history from a trans or non-binary patient
  • identify key sexual health issues faced by trans and non-binary patients
  • describe possible medical or surgical approaches to gender affirming treatments and their common complications
  • evaluate how welcoming the service is for trans and non-binary people.

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

The new session can be found in the ‘Approach to patient’ module. For more information about the elearning programme and to access the full list of available sessions, visit the Sexual Health and HIV programme page.

The elearning 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.

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

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

A new elearning session on chemsex is now available as part of Health Education England elearning for healthcare’s (HEE elfh) 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 elearning’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 elfh.

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