Deep Dive into Dyspareunia: A multidisciplinary workshop on sexual pain – 6 Aug 2022

6 August, 2022 @ 8:30 am - 5:30 pm AEST

Deep Dive into Dyspareunia workshop details for Saturday 6 August

This interactive 1-day online workshop will gather a multidisciplinary team of experts to discuss, in detail, the assessment and management of dyspareunia. It will include presentations as well as interactive case-based discussions inclusive of diversity of gender, sexual orientation, culture and clinical features.

AFMW member and VP WP MWIA, Dr Desiree Yap AM is one of the speakers.



After several years of running very successful short courses, including the 2 day course called “Let’s talk about sex: Sexuality and Sexual difficulties”, we at the Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology at Monash University have developed a new 1 day live, online course on managing sexual pain.

In this course we have the opportunity to dive deeper into the breadth and complexities of helping people who are experiencing painful sex.

Format: The morning will include 30 minute presentations from our multidisciplinary faculty of speakers (GP, Gynaecologist, Vulval Dermatologist, Sexual Medicine specialist and Sexual & Relationship therapist, Physiotherapist, Pain specialist and Psychologist) with Q & A. The afternoon will be interactive case discussions including cases across the lifespan, inclusive of diversity of gender, sexual orientation, relationship status & structure, culture, and clinical features.



Date: Saturday 6 August 2022
Mode: Online, live sessions (presentations and case studies)
