183209 - FPAA Certificate in Reproductive and Sexual Health for Medical Practitioners (Clinical) (WA)

  • : Online

This course aims to improve knowledge, skills and confidence in reproductive and sexual health consultations. The course provides clinical supervision in a range of presentations including reproductive and sexual history taking, communication skills, consultation skills with young people, cervical screening, vulvo-vaginal and female pelvic examination, male anogenital examination, common gynaecological problems, vulvo-vaginal problems, menopause, breast assessment, non-directive unintended pregnancy consultations, contraception consultations, contraceptive implant insertion and removal, sexually transmissible infection screening and management, and asking about sexual assault and family violence.

Relevance to General Practice

This course enhances the ability of GPs to provide services in the complex and specialised area of reproductive and sexual health. Reproductive and sexual health presentations are common in primary care, with the majority of contraception and sexually transmissible infections being managed by GPs. This course is relevant to GPs in training, and experienced GPs alike. It provides education in areas that are often identified as important and potentially challenging, such as the assessment of the maturity of minors or supporting patients of diverse sex, sexuality and gender, and strategies to provide non-judgemental care. The FPAA National Certificate course offers a well-recognised curriculum comprising communication skills, medical knowledge and clinical skills.
