Kink Health for the Sexually Adventurous

Back to events

Hosted by the Victorian HIV and Hepatitis Integrated Training and Learning (VHHITAL) program, this session offers an overview of alternative sexual practices and how they can impact presentations in general practice. The training will provide primary healthcare practitioners with guidance on how to approach the subject of alternative sexual expressions in a safe and supportive manner.

General practice is the first service most patients will access when seeking sexual healthcare, however some clients may be involved in sexual expressions they may not feel safe to disclose. The training will equip participants with the skills and knowledge to create supportive environments in general practice that allow patients to access comprehensive sexual healthcare on an individualised basis.
