There are multiple challenges preventing integration of sexual and reproductive health (SRH) information into the curriculum of medical and nursing education. To achieve the end goal of having an inter-professional workforce capable of taking care of patients’ sexual health in a variety of settings, integrating this information into the education of doctors and nurses is imperative.
In an effort to explore the issues that impact SRH education for both medical and nursing education, as well as IPE between these two fields as it relates to SRH curriculum, the American Sexual Health Association, Reproductive Health in Nursing, the Association of Reproductive Health Professionals, and Nursing Students for Sexual and Reproductive Health are bringing together representatives from nursing and medicine to participate in a Summit on Medical and Nursing School Education in Sexual Health.
The goals of the summit include identifying barriers to inclusion of SRH content in curriculum, and creating actionable solutions that will address these barriers. A report of the findings and recommendations will be drafted for publication following the summit.
