Promoting Excellence in Sexual and Reproductive Health


Deep Dive into Dyspareunia: A multidisciplinary workshop on sexual pain

22 Jul 2023
Online course

Following on from 5 years of running the successful 2 day course: “Let’s talk about sex: Sexuality and Sexual difficulties”, we at the Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology at Monash University have developed a 1 day live, online course on managing sexual pain.

In this course we have the opportunity to dive deeper into the breadth and complexities of helping people who are experiencing painful sex.

The morning will include 30 minute presentations from our multidisciplinary faculty of speakers, with Q & A. In the afternoon, we will discuss six cases across the lifespan, inclusive of diversity of clinical features, gender, sexual orientation, relationship status & structure, and culture. We will take a biopsychosociocultural approach to each case.

This course has been approved for CPD/CME hours for RACGP and RANZCOG. Others are pending - see website for updates.

Manly Pacific Hotel, Sydney

ASHM is pleased to host the Australasian Sexual and Reproductive Health Conference in collaboration with the Australasian Sexual and Reproductive Health Alliance.

The Manly Pacific Hotel, Sydney, will host this three-day face-to-face conference from 18 – 20 September 2023.

The Australasian Sexual and Reproductive Health Day (ASRH day) commenced in 2021 as an affiliated event of the well-established Joint Australasian HIV&AIDS and Sexual Health Conferences. It was created out of an identified need to strengthen the linkages between sexual and reproductive health services and rights. Due to the success of this event over the last two years, in 2023, the ASRH Day will be incorporated into the main Sexual Health Conference, officially acknowledging the inclusion of reproductive health within the program.

The HIV/AIDS conference will not be held in 2023 due to the International AIDS Society Conference being held in Australia. However, the program will rejoin the Sexual and Reproductive Health Conference in 2024.
