Event description
Session 1 of SHIP training for GPs - STI update for GPs

About this Event

Sexual Health in Practice (SHIP) training is interactive, practical & peer-led training in sexual health, appropriate for all GPs, not just for those with a particular interest.

  • Do you want to learn quick simple strategies to assess your patients’ sexual health risk?
  • Find out why the use of speculae is plummeting!
  • Are you all too aware of the reasons NOT to offer an HIV test?
  • Do you worry about how to bring up the topic out of the blue?

SHIP training has been shown to change clinical practice and improve sexual health outcomes for patients. The sessions were designed and are taught by GPs, who understand the complexities, challenges and pragmatic approach of general practice. The content is based on the latest available evidence, and is tailored for the GP setting.

We will help you become confident in sexual health risk assessment and make meaningful changes to your clinical practice!
