92029 Therapeutic Communication in Reproductive Health6cp; block
Health practitioners working in reproduction and fertility require well-developed therapeutic communication skills and a sound understanding of the psychosocial issues associated with infertility. This subject is based on a population health approach to enable mental health promotion and the early recognition of protective and risk factors that impact during assisted reproduction and early pregnancy. Psychological wellbeing is explored using understandings of cultural constructs and students develop the skills to critically discuss community perceptions about infertility. Skills in interviewing and assessment are developed, and students explore best practice approaches for the management of psychosocial and mental health problems and illness as they relate to infertility.
