 Contraception and Sexual Health Introduction (Public Health) Level 1  

May 20, 2021 @ 9:00 am - 2:00 pm

Lesson Plan

Course Title    Contraception & Sexual Health Introduction (Public Health) Level 1

Improving Sexual and Reproductive Health (SRH) and preventing sexual ill-health is important to both individuals and communities. People have different needs at different times; however, most will at some point require access to services including provision of contraception and testing for (and treatment of) sexually transmitted infections. This awareness training doesn’t cover wider aspects of education and learning that registered professionals will need to fulfill their role in the provision of contraception under a patient group direction or as a non- medical prescriber. It provides a current awareness of sexual health and contraceptive practices available for patients to be sign posted to and will increase knowledge and dispel myths and misconceptions relating to sexual health and contraception. It will broaden your depth of knowledge and you will leave with an understanding of local services, how to access them, and where/how their own service fits into the wider systems to support sexual health and well – being.
