Event Details

Sexual and Reproductive Health Conference

Presented by the Barbados Family Planning Association

Saturday 24 June – Sunday 25 June 2017

Radisson Aquatica Resort – Barbados

 

Good sexual and reproductive health is a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being in all matters relating to the reproductive system. It implies that people are able to have a satisfying and safe sex life, the capability to reproduce, and the freedom to decide if, when, and how often to do so. (UNFPA).

 

The Barbados Family Planning Association will be hosting its first medical conference on Sexual and Reproductive Health in the Caribbean on June 24-25, 2017, and we invite your participation.


Scheduled to be held at the Radisson Aquatica Hotel in Barbados, the goal of this conference is to provide an opportunity for information sharing and enhanced knowledge of current sexual and reproductive health practices, psychosocial perspectives, patient considerations and barriers to care. Topics explored include contraception, fertility, chronic disease and reproductive health, sexual transmitted infections, adolescent health and more. Health care providers, mental health professionals, health educators and others involved in the multidisciplinary care and intervention network are welcome to attend this event. The hours of this event will contribute to Continuing Professional Education credits for the participants.


The BFPA invites all stakeholders to join us for our inaugural Sexual and Reproductive Health Conference as we strive to create a community where each individual has access to the highest quality Sexual and Reproductive Health Information, education and services.

The panel will feature guest presenter Helen Knox, UK’s first Outreach Clinical Nurse Specialist in Contraception and Sexual Health who is an expert in contraception and sexual health training and publications for all age groups, using exciting, motivational, and innovative ways. Her main presentation will be a special interactive workshop on Men’s Sexual Health, exploring the challenges that arise with male sexual health consultations and examinations. 

 


 

Objectives:

  • To influence the knowledge, attitudes and beliefs of  health care providers in their practice of sexual and reproductive health interventions
  • To promote the standardization of sexual and reproductive health practices
  • To advocate for the use of evidence-based interventions in practice to ultimately improve patient care and outcomes
  • To explore current practices in the approach to gender and health
