Sexually transmissible infections (STIs) are significant public health concerns in Western Australia. Practitioners in general practice and primary care settings have a pivotal role in the diagnosis of STIs, including through increased opportunistic screening, and in providing on-going management and follow up for people and their partners.  

These online modules will support Western Australian primary care providers to confidently discuss sexual health with patients and conduct guideline-based STI screening and testing.
