The aim of the course is to equip participants with the basic knowledge, skills and attitudes for the effective management of sexually transmitted infections (STIs) outside the GUM setting.


Early registration is preferable. It is recommended to attend both days although if you have attended a STIF course in the past 3 years, you can attend the STIF PLUS day to update your knowledge and skills.


It is highly recommended that delegates study the appropriate modules in e-Learning for Health before attending.


This will entail around 8-12 hours of study depending on your experience.  Further information about the modules will be provided by the course organisers approximately four weeks before the course commences.


This is a multi-disciplinary course and applications are invited from:

Doctors and nurses working in general practice, family planning and reproductive health, GUM, health advisers, secondary care clinicians who may encounter patients with STIs (e.g. O&G, A&E, rheumatology, ophthalmology), pharmacists, and school nurses.
