STIS In WA Primary Care – Online Module

Dates Offered

Self-paced online course

This course replaces the WA STI Education Project previously offered through Edith Cowan University, which was funded through the Department of Health Western Australia. These organisations have kindly consented to SHQ using the materials used in that course as the basis for this new one.

The course is intended to provide primary health care professionals with comprehensive education about discussing STIs with patients, and testing for and managing STIs. It includes public health responsibilities and legal issues, and recommends useful online resources for ongoing use.

The module consists of three units. All participants will complete Units 1 and 2. The third unit is a special unit for Western Australian Nurses and Aboriginal Health Practitioners to provide treatment for sexually transmitted infections (chlamydia and gonorrhoea) to adults and mature minors aged 14 years or older in accordance with the operational policies of the Department of Health Western Australia. Other participants have the option to undertake this unit for their own interest.

Participants will have one month from the date of enrolment in which to complete units. (Nurses who enrol in the full Nurses’ Certificate course will, however, have a longer time to complete this module). A certificate of completion will be provided for each unit. Doctors need to complete Units 1 and 2, including passing the assessments, to be eligible for CPD points.
