Female Genital Mutilation
Healthcare professionals providing pre-travel consultations should routinely consider the risk of FGM for female travellers. National guidance states that a question about FGM should be included in all routine pre-travel risk assessment questionnaires. Routinely considering FGM risk extends further than simply asking a question on a risk assessment form; it relies on practitioners having adequate knowledge and comprehension of FGM that they are confident to apply in practice. This eLearning module helps health care professionals identify those at risk of FGM, and sets out practical ways you can discuss this sensitive subject with your patients.
