186157 - Introduction to Rural Sexual Health

  • : Online

Practicing health care in a rural and remote setting has its differences to practicing in an urban setting. This also pertains to the delivery of sexual health care. This module aims to explore aspects of sexual health care that may be different, more challenging or even more cohesive in a rural health care setting. This module can be part of the ALM Facets of Rural Sexual Health Practice.

Relevance to General Practice

The majority of Sexual and Reproductive Health care is conducted by General Practitioners. This is a challenging area of medicine as it is a private issue for most patients and requires a sensitive approach and cross cultural mindfulness. The challenges can be intensified in rural and remote communities with overlapping relationships where health professional are very much a part of communities . This can lead to the perception of less confidentiality, which is not shown in research, but never the less important to address. The General Practitioner with a good understanding of issues facing rural sexual health practice will be more at ease to provide best practice medicine in this interesting yet challenging field. See attached supporting document.
