VIDEO: Sexual History-Taking for Every Body and Every Kind of Sex (Part II) (6/16/2022)
Traditional health and physical (H & P) examinations often neglect to capture patients' sexual health history, but this information is vitally important for diagnosis and treatment of illness. Part one of this training will examine and deconstruct sociocultural barriers that prevent clinicians from effectively talking to patients about sex, and support the development of skills to build and implement sexual histories for every body and every kind of sex.
This training will build on foundational skills learned in Part I to support development of effective and inclusive sexual history-taking practice in primary care.
This event is the sixth in a webinar series focusing on primary care providers in Montgomery County Maryland. Primary care providers play a critical role in Montgomery County’s Plan to End HIV by 2030. The Pride in Sexual Health Mini-Symposium is a web-based, CME/CEU-backed educational series designed to build primary care clinicians’ knowledge, skills and practice to support early HIV diagnosis, effective treatment and prevention. The series will conclude with a full-day, in-person, facilitated practicum at the Silver Spring Civic Center, where participants will have opportunities to practice their new skills with role play, small group discussion, standardized patients, and case study.
