EDUCATION & PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT
Communication with patients
- about intimacy & sexuality in connection with illness
Patients are increasingly demanding better conversations about intimacy & sexuality. We take their demands seriously.
Why talk to patients about intimacy & sexuality?
Studies show that it is common for medical doctors to find it challenged to talk to their patients about their sexuality. The reasons are i.a. fear of transgressing patient boundaries and not having correct answers. However, studies also show, that patient demand is rising.
Lucy Vittrup collaborates with Medical Education Institutes to meet the growing needs of patients, by implementing the conversation about intimacy and sexuality as part of their specialist training.
TRAINING FOR HEALTH PROFESSIONALS
Conversations about intimacy & sexuality
The course provides training in recognized methods for conducting a general sexological conversation with patients. You also get an overview of what knowledge is expected to be within your specialty and not least: What does not.
The teaching takes place as a combination of presentations, exercises, and role-plays and is offered digitally as well as in person.
Developed in collaboration with medical doctors specifically for medical doctors, but can also be offered to other health professionals.
