184300 - FPAA National Certificate in Reproductive and Sexual Health for Doctors - Distance Mode Theory (NSW

  • : Online

This course aims to improve knowledge, skills and confidence in reproductive and sexual health consultations. The course covers a broad range of topics including contraception, sexually transmitted infections, sexual history taking, diversity in sexuality and gender, adolescent sexual health, primary care andrology and gynaecology, sexual assault and family violence, sexual difficulties, cervical screening, breast health, menopause, vulvovaginal health, subfertility and unintended pregnancy choices.

Relevance to General Practice

This course enhances the ability of GPs to provide services in the complex and specialized area of reproductive and sexual health. Reproductive and sexual health presentations are common in primary care, with the majority of contraception and sexually transmitted 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 ‘mature minor’ assessment, supporting patients with diverse sexual preferences, sexual behaviours and gender identities, as well as strategies in providing non-judgmental care. The FPAA National Certificate course offers a well-recognised curriculum compromising communication skills, medical knowledge and clinical skills.
