Expressions of Interest – Specialist Curriculum Writers and Reviewers Panel
The Sexual Health and Blood-borne Virus Program at the WA Department of Health is responsible for planning, coordinating, implementing and monitoring the public health response to sexually transmissible infections and blood-borne viruses among priority populations in Western Australia. SHBBVP also manages the Growing and Developing Healthy Relationships (GDHR) website (https://gdhr.wa.gov.au) for school educators.
SHBBVP is seeking to establish a panel of specialist Curriculum Writers/Reviewers with demonstrated experience in Sexuality and Relationships Education to review curriculum content and develop assessment tasks for the GDHR website.
Appointment to this pool of writers is on a casual basis. Appointments can be made from the pool at any time for commencements over the next 12 months.
The two cases of multi-drug resistant gonorrhoea recently detected in Australia (one case was diagnosed in Western Australia, and a second in Queensland) serve as an important reminder about the importance of always practising safe sex, and getting regular STI tests.
Gonorrhoea can be passed on through unprotected vaginal, anal and oral sex, and many people with an infection don’t have any symptoms. If left untreated, gonorrhoea can cause serious health complications. Multi-drug resistant strains can be difficult to treat.
Gonorrhoea infections are on the rise across Australia. If you’ve had unprotected sex in the past, if it’s been awhile since your last STI test, or you have a new partner/s, consider getting tested at your GP or SHQ.
If you have any questions about gonorrhoea you can contact the Sexual Health Helpline on 9227 6178/1800 198 205.
