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.
This national certificate course covers the range of the sexual and reproductive health issues that are common in general practice. It is useful for GP Registrars, O&G trainees, and experienced general practitioners who wish to refresh their knowledge in the area. The theory component is run over a week, although participants can choose to attend individual days if they wish to. The clinical component is seven sessions of 3.5 hours each. Supervised clinical attachment bookings are currently suspended due to the COVID 19 Pandemic.
Those wishing to insert IUDs in practice will also require supervised clinical practice – normally this is three to four sessions of 3.5 hours each. Supervised clinical attachment bookings are currently suspended due to the COVID 19 Pandemic

We are currently unable to offer clinical supervision at SHQ for the insertion and removal of contraceptive implants. It is recommended that the initial two to three insertions and removals are conducted in your own practice with the supervision of another practitioner with established contraceptive implant competency. If this is not possible, a clinical supervisor from SHQ to come to your practice may be able to be arranged. Please contact us if you would like to enquire further about this option.
If you are an experienced sexual and reproductive health doctor, you may be eligible to be approved as an external preceptor for doctors undertaking the clinical training component of the Certificate in Sexual and Reproductive Health or IUD training. Please click on the heading, read the information sheet, and complete the application form if you wish to apply.
