STI Testing in Primary Care – New online learning for WA health professionals!

By September 26, 2020No Comments
In recent years, the incidence of some STIs in Western Australia has been rising at an alarming rate. This year a syphilis outbreak has been declared in metro Perth. It’s more important than ever for Western Australian primary care providers to screen and test for STIs.
ASHM is pleased to announce a new online learning module, funded by and developed in collaboration with WA Health. Through interactive quizzes and case studies, Western Australian GPs and other health professionals can develop their skills to confidently discuss sexual health with patients, conduct guideline-based STI screening and testing, and initiate contact tracing.
The module is an accredited learning activity with RACGP and ACRRM, and a certificate of completion is available.
