In partnership with Island Health, UBC CPD is excited to present this workshop on the health of gay, bisexual, and other men who have sex with men (MSM). The goal of this session is for physicians and primary care providers to develop and build the confidence to provide primary care for patients who are MSM, and move beyond sexual health into more complex issues. This workshop is designed for those who are inexperienced working with MSM patients and want to improve their care of this population. 

Topics discussed include: common health issues experienced by MSM, epidemiology, communication skills (including talking about sex and taking a sexual history), how to make the clinic a welcoming and inclusive environment, STI screening requirements, mental health and substance use, aging, and HIV prevention.

This interactive, in-person workshop will be facilitated by a dynamic group of physicians and experts in MSM health. The first portion of the workshop will provide a presentation on theme-specific content, with many opportunities for questions and discussion. The second portion of the workshop will take place within small, interactive groups, maximizing opportunities for discussion, questions, and networking. Participants will plan for integrating new skills into practice, then after six weeks will complete an exercise reflecting on how their practice has changed, and discuss barriers and enablers.
