This module has been designed for registered nurses wanting to further develop their clinical and theoretical skills and effectively contribute to the sexual health services. You will learn to evaluate the impact of sexual health policy and sexual health promotion strategies on service provision. Upon completion, you will be deemed competent to work clinically in sexual health services.
This module will cover the following areas:
Before you start the course, you will need to source a clinical placement in a sexual health / contraceptive clinic to successfully complete the clinical practice portion of this module and gain a minimum of 32 hours experience.
You will be taught through online resources, lectures, and discussion groups involving critical incident analysis. You will also use various strategies to encourage your personal development and reflection skills.
Assessment takes the form of an exam (Level 6: 1.5 hours / Level 7: 2 hours) consisting of a combination of multiple choice, short answers and case studies. You must also complete a clinical assessment document signed by a practice assessor.
You will be required to have a practice supervisor / assessor who will be responsible for ensuring all the clinical competencies for the course are met.
