Training for Primary Care
The Faculty of Sexual and Reproductive Health (FSRH) offers a training programme aimed at Doctors, GPs and Nurses who wish to develop the necessary knowledge, attitude, and skills to support women seeking contraception. It will enable clinicians to hold consultations, provide intrauterine contraception and sub-dermal contraceptive implants competently, and manage any complications or side-effects that may occur. Swish can provide the practical training for the FSRH qualifications and letters of competence.
DFSRH provides you with the knowledge and skills to enable you to carry out an effective contraception consultation as part of a comprehensive approach to Sexual & Reproductive Healthcare (SRH). For more information, please check the faculty website. If you are interested, our experienced FSRH registered trainers can support you to complete the training.
