StratOG contains the following resources:


Core training tutorials

Price
There are 98 eTutorials available. For UK residents, each tutorial is £24 (inclusive of VAT). If you live outside the UK, prices will vary. Please see our International (non-UK) price structure.

VAT policy
All tutorials are VAT inclusive (where applicable). VAT will only affect UK residents. The prices shown when selecting tutorials, and in your shopping cart, will be the total price of the purchase for all customers.

Once purchased, you can access a tutorial online for 2 years.

Membership benefit access
Fellows, Members, Associates and registered trainees of the RCOG can access the online StratOG Core Training tutorials as a benefit of membership. For more information, see our membership benefits page. Registered trainees are trainees who are members of the Trainees’ Register. If you are eligible for membership benefits access and logged into the site, your College affiliation will be recognised and access provided automatically.

Cost of the 98 Core eTutorials
StratOG is designed so that you can purchase individual tutorials to meet your training requirements.

If you want to purchase multiple tutorials, you may find it more cost-effective to join the Trainees’ Register or become an Associate of the RCOG, depending on your level of career progression (trainee or consultant, respectively).

International price structure

To see what band your country falls into and for more information, see our International (non-UK) price structure.

Technical skills

EaSI

The eLearning and Simulation for Instrumental delivery (EaSi) resource is an externally-produced addition to the technical skills resources. It provides 9 eTutorials covering background and preparation of instrumental delivery, vacuum extraction, forceps, rotational deliveries and key decison making.

MaternityPEARLS

The Maternity Perineal Assessment and Repair eLearning System (MaternityPEARLS) resource is an externally-produced addition to the technical skills resources. In 2015, it was converted into a Blended eLearning and Simulation Training (BeST) programme. It enhances clinicians' knowledge and skills in the assessment, repair and postnatal management of episiotomy and second degree tear associated with childbirth.

Fellows, Members and Associates of the RCOG and members of the RCOG's Trainees' Register receive access as part of their membership benefits. Non-members can purchase access and, once purchased, access lasts for 2 years years. The same discounts are offered to purchases of MaternityPEARLS from under-resourced countries as are applied to Core Tutorial purchases. See our International (non-UK) price structure for more details.

Basic Practical Skills eLearning

The Basic Practical Skills (BPS) online course is an eLearning module that has been created for the BPS course. As well as refining surgical techniques in the practical course, it is important to understand the theory and key issues behind the practical skills. These tutorials will refresh your knowledge on topics covered by the BPS course, and test what you have learned through self-assessments at the end and are free to access.


Non-technical skills

This module has eTutorials focusing on non-technical skills, including human factors and workplace-based behaviour.
