Clinical Guidance and Support:

Members Evidence Request - How to access it and submit your request

Icon for DiplomatesIcon for AssociatesIcon for MembershipIcon for Fellow

The Clinical Effectiveness Unit (CEU) provides an evidence-based enquiry service for FSRH members. The CEU will conduct a literature review and summarise the available evidence in relation to a particular medical condition and/or contraceptive method.

The FSRH CEU has produced a quick guide on conducting systematic literature reviews to answer clinical questions (log in to access the guide). This brief and easy-to-use guide aims to support FSRH members to conduct a systematic literature search/review to answer clinical enquiries they may have. The process described in this guidance is adapted from the process used by the FSRH CEU when responding to enquiries made via the members evidence request service.

How do I access the Members Evidence Request?

You can log into our website any time and search the database of queries to find what you are looking for. The video below shows you how to access this Members only resource.

Clinical Guidance and Support for FSRH Members

The Clinical Effectiveness Committee oversees FSRH’s Clinical Effectiveness Unit (CEU), which works to promote evidence-based clinical practice. The unit has 4 main work streams: evidence-based guidance (including the review and update of the UK Medical Eligibility Criteria); members’ evidence request; new product reviews; and clinical audit/research.

Clinical Guidance

FSRH's Clinical Standards are applicable to individual clinicians, as well as those managing or commissioning SRH services. They are designed to ensure high quality patient care is delivered as standard and are built upon available clinical evidence and best practice examples. Auditable outcomes are integrated within the standards for practicable application and benchmarking.

Clinical Standards

Members are also given access to additional guidance and standards supporting documents, accessible via the Training Hub.

Our quarterly produced high-quality journal offers you an insight into research and articles on SRH.

BMJ Sexual & Reproductive Health is an international journal that promotes evidence-informed practice for contraception, abortion and all aspects of sexual and reproductive health. The journal publishes research papers, topical debates and commentaries to shape policy, improve patient-centred clinical care, and to set the stage for future areas of research.

If you hold our MFSRH, our Diploma (DFSRH) and/or our Letters of Competence (LoC SDI/LoC IUT), we require recertification of these qualifications every five years.

This is to ensure that you have developed and maintained the knowledge, skills, attitude and behaviour needed to provide safe and effective sexual and reproductive health care (SRH).

As a member you can recertify free of charge, as this is a benefit included in your annual membership fee. 

Please note: you must have paid your membership fee continuously for the five years leading up to recertifying.
