Presented by Ms Cherie Bennett, this, the second in the ASHM Sexual Health Nursing Webinar series looked at the following learning objectives:
Completing a basic sexual health history.
Identifying individuals or groups for who STI screening/testing is warranted
Describing techniques to use when engaging with clients at-risk of contracting or passing on an STI.
Gaining an awareness of the resources available to support nurses to engage patients in these discussions in primary care.
The webinar was aligned with the Sexual Health Nursing Competency Standards for Primary Healthcare Nurses (2013) and provided nurses with the clinical skills, confidence and knowledge to encourage their patients to engage in STI testing.
This webinar is delivered through a collaboration between ASHM and the NSW STI Programs Unit.
