***After careful consideration, we have made the decision to cancel the Sexual Health 2020 Conference for May 29-30, 2020. This is a disappointing but prudent decision as the COVID-19 situation continues to evolve rapidly. The safety and well-being of our learners and their patients is our top priority.

All registered participants will receive a FULL refund for the conference; please note that due to the volume of refunds we are processing it could take up to 12 weeks to receive your refund. We apologize for any inconvenience!

Sexual health is important to patients, but may be neglected by clinicians due to lack of training, fluency or comfort. In society and as individuals we recognize sex’s role in pleasure, relationships and identity. As clinicians, however, we direct our attention primarily to the negative consequences of sex: preventing or addressing conception, disease and violence. We may also forget that some aspects of sexuality have nothing to do with sex.
This popular conference seeks to expand the clinical conversation about sexual health, which is relevant to all clinicians - whether we work in primary care, specialty or focused practice. If and how we have those conversations has profound impacts for our patients.

Participants will:

  • Recognize the importance of sexual health for the wellbeing of patients of all ages, all genders and all orientations
  • Develop confidence and competence in a range of topics germane to sexual health
  • Acquire strategies to apply in their practice
