New Good Practice Points: Talking to parents about their sexual wellbeing

30th March 2016

sexual_wellbeingNew Good Practice Points for Health Visitors about Talking to parents about their sexual wellbeing have been published for our Associate members.

Despite sexual health being a priority within the Healthy Child Programme, many health visitors, from student to senior health visitor level, report difficulties in initiating discussions about sex with new parents (Glazener, 1997).
As much as professionals can find sexuality hard to talk about, so can parents – but that is not because they don’t think it is important.

Please note that this new GPP is available to iHV members only.
