STIF course was very enjoyable and informative experience. It is always a privilege to listen to experts in their field. I also found it a useful opportunity to share experiences and gain insight from the other participants giving insight into the patients’ experience/journey – why they might be referred and when to refer.
As a newly qualified nurse working for a year in sexual health, I found the course helped me fill in gaps in my knowledge and give a deeper understanding of why we do what we do. I particularly found the dermatology skin/normal anatomy session useful, it helped me build confidence when examining patients and to go on to share this with colleagues and give reassurance and explanation to clients.
