This module aims to create health care practitioners who are able to work sensitively with clients and are able to understand the issues and management of contraception and sexually transmitted infections. Completion of this module will give nurses a strong foundation of clinical and theoretical skills in contraception and sexual healthy. It will enable health care practitioners to contribute more effectively to the sexual health services and to evaluate the impact of sexual health policy and sexual health promotion strategies on service provision. Nurses will be deemed competent to work clinically in sexual health services.
