Impact of teaching sexual health education on medical students

Family Medicine Jul 05, 2020

Bourne SJF, Lee CM, Taliaferro E, et al. - Via a retrospective pre/postsurvey, researchers interrogated all medical students who taught sexual health education in a local middle school via Sex Ed by Brown Med (N=61), to ultimately ascertain if medical students’ self-efficacy in discussing sexual health topics with adolescents would increase as a result of teaching sexual health education. As a consequence of engagement in Sex Ed by Brown Med, improvement was evident in self-efficacy in discussing nine sexual health topics as well as in performing nine advanced interviewing skills relevant to sexual health. Findings are suggestive of the likely usefulness of programs similar to Sex Ed by Brown Med for improving the ability of medical students to sufficiently care for their patients’ sexual health by making future clinicians more comfortable when discussing the crucial subject of sexuality, and concurrently affording evidence-based comprehensive sexual health education to middle school students. Further inquiry is required to ascertain the effect of experts' program (and similar programs) prior to disseminating this model of sexual education.
