Working with the Society for Sexual Health Advisers (Sexual Health Advising) who had developed a competency framework in 2013, STIF has produced this clinical training package to train and assess the knowledge and competence of healthcare professionals working as Sexual Health Advisers in Level 3 GUM services or in Integrated GUM/CASH services. It culminates in accreditation and certification with BASHH through 'The STI Foundation'. The trainee will be registered on the STIF Competency database. A revalidation process is required every 5 years to maintain registration.
