GENA702 Sexual and Reproductive Health

Principles of reproductive health care over the life cycle in different settings (e.g. adults, adolescents, travellers, MSM, early pregnancy). Topics include: STIs, epidemiology, screening, prevention and treatment, contraception, sexual abuse, legislation and ethics.

Sexual and reproductive health incorporates many aspects of core primary care professional practice, especially for younger people, vulnerable populations and other groups with particular needs. This paper extends and updates approaches, knowledge and skills for experienced primary care professionals, especially nurses and doctors, but all primary health care professionals who work directly with clients/patients will find it valuable.
