HSE Foundation Programme in Sexual Health Promotion

The aim of the course is to enhance participants’ capacity to incorporate sexual health promotion into their work through the development of their confidence, knowledge and skills in relation to sexual health.

This course is unique in an Irish context in terms of its content, length and approach to sexual health promotion. It is also unique in its blend of participant professions, including front line clinicians, teachers, counsellors, social workers, psychologists, community and youth workers and representatives from the physical and intellectual disability sectors, to name but a few.

The course has been awarded CPD points from NMBI, IASW and the IACP.
