The Training department within Haringey Contraception and Sexual Health services delivers the ‘Course of 5’ training module for doctors as part of the Diploma of the Faculty of Sexual and Reproductive Health on a monthly basis. It consists of 5 one hour workshops and assessments covering the core theoretical learning objectives in Contraception and Sexual Health and must be passed before progressing to clinical training. Between November 2012 to 2013, 236 doctors were trained within our training department with high rating on the course feedback from candidates.


We aimed to evaluate the quality of the teaching experience of trainers within our department who have delivered sessions within this course.
All trainers were asked to complete an anonymous electronic survey about their experience teaching on the course. Results were analysed using an Excel database. Results

Fifteen out of 18 (83%) of trainers responded; 7 doctors and 8 nurses. Some sessions are led singly by a Dr or nurse and some by both clinicians. The majority (55%) of the trainers enjoyed teaching on Session 1 (HIV pre-test discussion and sexual history taking) and Session 2 (STI screening) the most. They found these sessions most interactive and updated their knowledge. Two (13%) trainers indicated some difficulties in keeping the motivation of students high throughout the hour and in the amount of material which needed to be covered in the allocated time. Two (13%) trainers suggested that using more models or videos and one that using the same teacher for different sessions would improve the teaching experience. All trainers reported positive benefits from teaching within the course which included confidence building in teaching and communication, continued professional development, updating their knowledge, sharing expertise and improving multi- disciplinary team working in the department. The majority 14 (93%) felt that there were adequate resources and all felt that the administrative support was excellent. Five (33%) felt that more time was needed during the sessions for more detailed discussions.
This survey demonstrated a positive experience in teaching on the Course of 5 by all trainers working in our department. Suggestions for further improving the training experience will be discussed with all trainers in particular the timing of sessions and additional props for the sessions.
