    We write in response to the article in the July 2012 issue of this Journal by Shelley Mehigan and Janice Burnett entitled 'An innovative training for nurses in sexual health'[1]. We agree wholeheartedly that a nationally recognised, standardised training for nurses in sexual and reproductive health is needed and that the best way forward may be for the Faculty of Sexual and Reproductive Healthcare (FSRH) to accredit nurse...

    Nurse accreditation: a better way of working

    Well done Berkshire. I completely agree with Mehigan and Burnett[1] - it is essential that some standardisation is needed in the training of nurses in SRH across the UK and it is preferable that this should be accredited by the FSRH. There is also the valuable point that there is a belief that accreditation can only be achieved through academic institutes and the RCN! This is usually at significant cost for the course, time...

    Training for nurses working in SRH

    I read the article[1] by Mehigan and Burnett in the July 2012 issue of this Journal about training for nurses working in the field of sexual and reproductive health (SRH) with interest.

    This is certainly a challenge faced by many, and one which we are trying to work on in Solihull at the moment. We have a significant number of nurses who are shining stars in the world of SRH and are waiting for funding to atten...

    An innovative training for nurses in sexual and reproductive health.

    I have just read and would like to congratulate the authors on their excellent article "An innovative training for nurses in sexual reproductive health" in the July 2012 issue of this Journal [1]. I totally agree with the five benefits of their methods of training. The most important one is matched multidisciplinary skills, this being so necessary for nurses to undertake further training to fit implants and intrauterine devi...
