Some studies report female sexual dysfunction involving sexual pain affecting from 3- 46% of the female population. The pain can affect women's sense of self and have an impact psychologically, financially and affects relationships. Thus female sexual pain requires appropriate biopsychosocial assessment and management. The course will have at least 50% of the content underpinned by research to support the terminology, assessment protocols and treatment options. The focus of the course is to enable the participants to understand common types of female sexual pain. In order to identify common types of female sexual pain definitions will be summarised. There will be a focus on safe external and internal assessment (vaginal examination experience essential) which will require active participation from the course attendees.
