The Circles of Sexuality
June 9 @ 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM CDT
A patient’s sexuality typically encompasses far more than what they present during a clinical encounter. Possessing a broader understanding of sexuality models and how less visible factors may interact with those aspects a patient does choose to reveal can assist in providing more comprehensive health care, particularly in HIV care. Participate in this interactive program to learn about one such model, The Circles of Sexuality, and how to apply it in order to reduce your own biases and improve patient care.
