This paper discusses the development, implementation and evaluation of a training programme in sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) for general practitioners (GPs) belonging to the Divisions of General Practice in the Sydney metropolitan area.
The aims of the project were to involve GPs in the management of STDs, sexual health issues and the prevention of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection and to ensure a consistent and high quality of care in the management of STDs and HIV.
The strategy used was a two-stage programme consisting of a series of 3 educational modules (total 15h) and an intensive clinical training programme for selected GPs for 12 times 4h clinical sessions.
Needs assessment of the participating GPs was conducted to ensure that the content of the theory modules was appropriate.
Evaluation of the modules was conducted to examine both perceived quality of the actual presentations and changes in knowledge or skills as a result of participation in the project.
