Sexually transmitted infections (STI) online training program

The aim of this project is to increase the knowledge and skills in managing sexually transmitted infections through the education of medical practitioners, nurses and other professionals in Western Australia.

The project is funded by the Department of Health, WA Sexual Health and Blood Borne Virus Program.

The free online training program involves two modules and was launched on 30 June 2011. The program has been approved for professional development points by the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners and the Royal College of Nursing, Australia. The online training materials are regularly maintained and content is updated as required.

The Special Module for Nurses was developed in 2012 to train rural and remote nurses in Western Australia to provide treatment for sexually transmitted infections (chlamydia and gonorrhoea) to patients aged 16 years or above in accordance with the operational policies of the Department of Health Western Australia.

The online training can be accessed on our STI Education Project website.
