Health Promotion & Education - Module 2/01C & Teaching in Clinical Practice Module 2/08 A Level 2 Combined Summative Assessment. Submitted to : University of Surrey?

The author intends to critically analyse a need for safer sex health education, and will demonstrate a teaching strategy to meet this need for the clients attending a Department of Genito-Urinary Medicine (GUM) at a large suburban NHS trust hospital. Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) and sexually transmitted infections (STI's) are responsible for considerable morbidity and mortality in the United Kingdom (UK), and the incidence appears to be on the increase (Annex A: PHLS CDSC, 1997; DOH, 1996). Therefore the Conservative Government attempted to address this problem with the advent of the "Health of the Nation" document in 1992. This document sets out defined areas for health promotion, included in these are areas relating to sexual health. More recently the present Labour Government set out its document relating to health promotion and education, entitled "Our Healthier Nation" (1998). However, the main criticism levelled at this Green Paper was, it failed to recognise sexual health as an actual or potential problem (HPS, 1998). The promotion of sexual health is a legitimate role for health professionals and is an essential nursing function (Ingram-Fogel, 1990). With direct client contact, nurses are ideally placed to carry out this vital educational role (Winship and Peachey, 1995), but there is more to this than just giving out leaflets with information about HIV and STI's. ...read more.


This can be achieved through a basic verbal question and answer scenario. This encourages the thought processes of the client and identifies key factors inherent to the problem of unsafe sexual practices (Walkin, 1990). The client states that the main reasons behind his present attitude towards condoms, and their use is that he feels that they are contraceptives rather than a barrier to infection. This opinion is common among heterosexual adults in this country, and is frequently quoted by clients attending a GUM clinic for the first time (Sutton and Payne, 1997). Once the current level of knowledge is assessed then new information can be added into the discussion. This enables the client to make an informed choice about their sexual health behaviour, at the same time it allows them the opportunity to share and explore their own attitudes and beliefs (Naidoo and Wills, 1994). Bloom's (1956) three levels of mental performance i.e. analysis, synthesis and evaluation, can be grouped together into one known as "invention" (Walkin, 1990 : Naidoo and Wills, 1994). The client can demonstrate this process by breaking the information down into parts and indicating a clear understanding of the material given (Walkin, 1990). As part of the learning process it is important to introduce condoms and their application to the client, this can be a chance for a "hands on" demonstration by the health promoter. This can then be used as a form of evaluation, by getting the client to repeat the process in front of the health promoter. It is important that during the discussion and demonstration process that the health promoter does not dwell on the negativity of disease and infection as this negative reinforcement can have the opposite effect when discussing issues surrounding sexual health (Miller and Bor, 1991). In that the client may decide that this situation may have nothing to do with them, and therefore "switch off" and ignore any new information given to them. ...read more.
