Medical Professional Development

Romantic relationships impact our mental and physical health, which is why patients often confide in healthcare professionals about their sex lives. Yet physicians do not always have time to address these issues, and their medical staff may feel underprepared to answer such intimate questions - either due to discomfort with the topic or lack of proper training.


Relationship + sex educator Dr. Meghna Mahambrey, MEd, PhD has teamed up with oncology nurse Samantha Rogers, BSN, RN, OCN to offer a professional development seminar designed for medical professionals. Common patient concerns are addressed, along with strategies to answer these questions and support their sexual health and well-being. Participants will gain evidence-based knowledge and skills not typically covered in medical education, including:

  • Sexual anatomy and physiology

  • Psychology of sexual pleasure

  • Gender differences in desire, arousal, and orgasm

  • Influence of relationship quality on sexual satisfaction

  • Health considerations (illness, medication side effects, hospital stays)

  • The critical distinction between educating vs. advising patients

  • Inclusive ways to address these sensitive topics across diverse cultures, religions, and gender/sexual identities

Are you a nurse, physician's assistant, midwife, therapist, or other healthcare professional? Join us as we dive into sexual well-being through a healthcare lens, and walk away with comfort and confidence in addressing these topics with your patients.  This seminar is offered on multiple dates; participants only need to register for one. NOTE: nurses are eligible to receive 3.5 CNE hours through the Ohio Nurses Association.
