The AH&MRC are working in partnership with the Australasian Society for HIV, Viral Hepatitis & Sexual Health Medicine (ASHM) to deliver Sexual and Reproductive health webinars for our Aboriginal workforce.

This interactive online workshop provides Aboriginal Health Workers, Practitioners and nurses with an overview of sexual and reproductive health, including sexual history taking, STI screening and testing, and current contraceptive options.

The webinar will run for 90 minutes online via zoom and is free of charge. It is also CPD accredited and is endorsed by the Australian College of Nursing and the Australian National Association for Aboriginal Health Workers and Practitioners. It will be presented by a clinician and will be reviewed by the AH&MRC and external bodies to make sure it is culturally appropriate.
