Achieving Sexual Health The Role Of Health And Social Care Professionals

It can be seen from the above discussion that helping people to achieve sexual health is a vital part of the role of health professionals, but at the same time an extremely challenging one. Health professionals need a range of knowledge and skills to be able to engage with individual clients and groups in the promotion of sexual health. Probably the most crucial is the ability to deal with sensitive, confidential and personal issues and to be able to discuss aspects of clients' lifestyle and behaviours that are not usually shared outside a close sexual relationship. It is important that health professionals involved in sexual health promotion have a broad understanding of the theory and practice of health promotion and the current emphasis being placed on this by the current public health policy agenda.
