190039 - Pharmaceutical access for sexual health care in a rural setting

  • : Online

Sometimes it is good to put ourselves (those of us who are not Pharmacists) in other people’s shoes in order to learn to do our job better. This module explores being a rural pharmacist delivering sexual health medicines to customers. For health practitioners we explore the tools to make accessing pharmaceutical appropriate for their patients with sexual health issues.

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.
