Event Information

Description:

Gay men and other men who have sex with men (MSM) are a diverse community with specific needs and healthcare disparities which often go unaddressed. MSM represent 2-10% of the U.S. population, live in every geographic location, and interface with every healthcare provider. Furthermore, around one-third of the U.S. population engages in anal sex. The faculty will present practical, comprehensive primary care management specific to patients engaging in anal sex including: 1) proper history/physical examination techniques and appropriate language, 2) vulnerabilities and health disparities beyond just sexual health needs, 3) appropriate preventive care including specific immunization indications and screening examinations, 4) considerations in diagnosis and treatment, 5) considerations  when caring for these populations, 6) intersections with race and other minority statuses, and 7) practical resources which can be used in a variety of settings on a daily basis.

Learning Objectives:

At the conclusion of this session, participants should be able to:
⦁ Discuss specific health needs of gay men, MSM, or people engaging in anal sex
⦁ Perform a culturally sensitive history and physical examination
⦁ Identify preventive medicineopportunities related to anal sex
⦁ Screen for, diagnose, and treat common medical conditions which disproportionally affect people who engage in anal sex 
⦁ Identify resources to use in a clinical setting to facilitate care
