Who would benefit from this course

Course description

This nationally recognised course in reproductive and sexual health consists of three modules.

Modules 1 and 2 comprise Theory and Assessment.  The five-day Theory module is designed to provide participants with sound evidence-based knowledge in reproductive and sexual health, and the opportunity to discuss issues from their own clinical practice.  Assessment will conclude the five-day course.

Module 3 comprises competency based clinical training.  Clinical sessions include a sexual health or men's health clinic, an observation clinic at a Family Planning NSW clinic, and a minimum of five-eight participatory clinical sessions at Family Planning NSW clinics.

Clinical placements provide participants with the opportunity to develop and apply theoretical principles relating to contraceptive technology, gain confidence and expertise in clinical examination and procedures, and further develop communication and brief counselling skills in sexual and preventative health care.  Training in Family Planning NSW clinics with experienced clinical instructors aims to increase confidence in client communication and offers discussion of approaches to management of reproductive and sexual health issues.
