Updated eSRH content now available to access

Type: FSRH News and Information

We’re pleased to announce the launch of two updated sessions on our e-Learning for Sexual and Reproductive Healthcare (eSRH). Read on to find out more.

eSRH is an interactive online learning platform, which supports our Diploma and Letters of Competence qualifications as well as stand-alone learning for those interested and/or working in SRH. 

The content of current eSRH sessions 17 and 18 have been improved to align with our current FSRH standards and guidance as well as offer a more engaging educational experience. These have now been replaced by sessions 14 and 15 below. Learners will be required to take an assessment at the end of each session to receive their certificate.

The updated sessions, which are required for taking our Letter of Competence qualifications, include:

Session 14: Additional Training in Subdermal Implants (SDIs)
This replaces our current eSRH session 17. The session enables you to understand the advantages and disadvantages of a subdermal implant, alongside possible side-effects and the management of these.

Session 15: Additional Training in Intrauterine Contraception (IUC)
This replaces our current eSRH session 18. It will cover evidence-based recommendations and good practice points on the insertion of intrauterine contraception (IUC) and techniques, used within the UK.

Information for those completing sessions 17 and 18

While we strongly encourage all candidates studying for the LOCs or recertification to complete the new improved modules as soon as they are available, we will be offering a six month grace period from 29 November 2021 to 29 May 2022.

This means that modules 17 and 18 will still be accepted as evidence supporting any new LoCs application or recertification submission made during this period. After 29 May 2022, modules 17 and 18 will no longer be accepted and the new modules must be completed.

What is eSRH and how can I access it?

eSRH is a programme developed by us in partnership with Health Education England e-Learning for Healthcare (e-LfH). It supports a range of healthcare professionals, including GPs, nurses, midwives and pharmacists, to gain the relevant knowledge needed to deliver effective and safe SRH.

The sessions are interactive and readily accessible anywhere at any time. Learners can access information, read articles, undertake self-assessments, view video clips and animation, along with real-life case studies to support their learning.

It is free to access for anyone with a nhs.net address at the e-Learning for healthcare’s website – or you can pay to access content if you are based outside of the UK.

There has been a huge amount of work that has gone into reviewing this content. We’d like to thank clinicians in our Letter of Competence working group, alongside our General Training Committee for their contribution.
