11 Sexual health

This section of our curriculum guide refers to statement 11, Sexual Health, produced by the Royal College of General Practitioners (RCGP).

GPs have an important role in the management of sexual health problems in partnership with other members of the primary healthcare team and specialists. GPs and primary healthcare teams are ideally placed to take a holistic and integrated approach to sexual health. Education must promote learning that integrates different disciplines within the complex team of the NHS.

Here we have collated key articles from our journals to help you meet the curriculum requirements in this area.
