• eHIV-STI is an extensive e-learning tool developed by the British Association for Sexual Health and HIV (BASHH) in collaboration with the Royal Colleges of Physicians and e-Learning for Healthcare, (e-LfH)
  • The materials are written by subject matter specialists and subject to extensive peer review. Each of the 140 sessions is around 20 minutes in length incorporating video clips, case studies and an extensive picture library supported by self assessment tools. Within the learning management system it is possible to produce reports of personal usage of the material and to generate certificates of completion of individual sessions
  • Sessions from the programme are recommended preparation for the BASHH STI/HIV course and also for the Diploma in Genitourinary Medicine and the Diploma in HIV Medicine. As the project covers the knowledge required for a CCT in GUM it also acts a refresher for established consultants and non-consultant career grades and as such has been approved by the RCP for external CPD, supporting revalidation
  • It can be used to support specialist nurse, pharmacist and health adviser development within sexual health
  • eHIV-STI is relevant for clinicians in related specialties such as dermatology, infectious diseases and gynaecology,  as well as those in primary care wanting to increase their knowledge in the area of sexual health and HIV
  • The project contains a significant public health component which can be used as part of wider programmes of action to tackle public heath problems and health inequality issues related to STIs including HIV
