Nurse Specialist Training

The BSSVD values nurses working within the vulval clinic and recognise their valuable role. We support the British Dermatology Nurse Group development of a knowledge, skills and competency framework in vulval disease. This is an excellent resource and will support nurse development in vulval clinics working in a variety of clinical roles.

For more information on the competency framework please see this link

As a more basic level, the Royal College of Nursing has produced a document to provide standards and sample assessment tools for training in genital examination in women for registered nurses working in sexual and reproductive health settings, and related health and social care settings.
