Health Care Provider Track (August 8)

Due to unhealthy social and cultural norms related to sexuality, ineffective and inconsistent sexuality education in schools, and harmful misinformation about sexuality circling among communities and families, many patients feel unsure, uncomfortable, and even unsafe discussing sexuality issues and sexual health concerns with their health care providers. By creating a confidential, nonjudgmental, and safe clinical experience for all patients, providers can more successfully provide the sexual and reproductive health care and health education that patients need to be safe, healthy, and strong! During the Health Care Provider Track at the main conference, workshops will be offered on the following topics:

· Taking an unbiased and nonjudgmental sexual health history, increasing the likelihood of patient disclosure of a range of sexual health behaviors, intimate relationships, and sexual identities with the ultimate goal of improving patient care

· Providing Trauma-Informed Care (TIC) related to sexual and reproductive health

· An effective and brief, clinic-based intervention for Intimate Partner Violence (IPV), including reproductive coercion

· Benefits and drawbacks of Long Acting Reversible Contraceptives (LARCs), and effective patient counseling on these and other birth control options

Continuing Education for Nurses (RNs, NPs, and CNMs):

12.0 contact hours of continuing nursing education – including 6.0 contact hours for each day – This continuing nursing education activity was approved by the Wisconsin Nurses Association, an accredited approver by the American Nurses Credentialing Center’s Commission on Accreditation.
