Ireland’s second National Sexual Health Awareness Week (SHAW) is taking place 12 – 14 November 2013 in RCPI.
The theme of this year’s SHAW is Communication and Sexual Health because honest, supportive and inclusive communication is vital when it comes to our sexual health and sexuality. Speakers at SHAW will talk about how to have effective and positive conversations about relationships and sexuality with children, partners, older people, caregivers and people with an intellectual disability, whether it’s at home or in a professional setting.
Some SHAW workshops for professionals will deal with sensitive issues, such as the sexual health and education needs of young people in care, practitioners’ obligations in reporting child protection concerns, and preventing sexual violence.
Below are just some of the SHAW events and workshops that are taking place, and available to book into now. Please note the ICGP/RCPI joint session for GPs on managing STIs in General Practice is now fully booked.
