Welcome to the Nursing Times Learning online training course on sexually transmitted infections in women.
Rates of diagnosis of most STIs in the UK are on the rise. The current levels of provision of GUM services are unable to cope, requiring nurses working in primary care to increase their knowledge of STIs and improve their skills in taking sexual histories to assess risk.
This unit is one of many online courses for nurses available from Nursing Times, the UK's leading independent, peer-reviewed journal for nurses. It will teach you:
- To be aware of some of the commonest sexually transmitted infections (STIs) in women, their clinical features and how to diagnose them
- How to give patients accurate information and advice
- The best evidence based treatments
- The importance of tracing and treating partners, and when to refer for specialist advice
