Menopause and Sex: Approaching taboo conversations

March 14 @ 10:00 am - June 4 @ 1:00 pm AEDT
Let’s talk about the important topic of menopause, how it affects your patients sex life and more importantly what else is going on!

Women’s health has never been as much in the spotlight as it is now! Women are seeking out practitioners who provide continuity of care and take a holistic approach to treatment plans.

What University medical degrees do not cover well are:

  1. Menopause
  2. Sexual health (biopsychosocial aspects)
  3. Sex and ageing

It’s time to upskill and support your patients with the care they are seeking.

Come and join Vanessa Tarfon, qualified Sex Therapist and Founder of Authentic Awareness for a fun-filled 1 hour of learning. Vanessa is a trusted specialist in women’s sexual health with expertise in delivering valuable content on sensitive topics with cultural sensitivity, openness and honesty.

Sex is more a psychological act than a physical act and reduced libido in menopausal women is not just about hormones.

Sexual health plays an important role on overall health and wellbeing. Menopause affects women’s sexual health and their relationships and finding the root cause of your patients problems is essential for a successful journey and recovery.

This session is about:

  • Educating medical practitioners on how to raise a conversation around sex
  • Identifying what information to gather to best support patients beyond hormonal assistance
  • Learning easy and effective recommendations you can provide to your patients to re-engage with their sexuality and partner

Everyone has different comfort levels talking about sex and that INCLUDES Health Practitioners!

Maximise your patient-centred care of menopausal women by becoming confident to speak to patients about the psychological side of sex and functioning to gain a deeper understanding of their concerns and provide comprehensive and holistic assistance to your patient’s sexual health and experiences.

What you’ll learn:

  • Identify biopsychosocial factors that affect a menopausal woman’s sexual health beyond hormonal changes.
  • Identify personal experiences and values that inform their sexual health perspectives and apply tools and methods to commence and salvage sexual health discussions with patients in a comfortable, judgment-free environment.
  • Distinguish patient’s holistic needs and explain effective and practical recommendations to re-engage with their sexuality and partner.
