In the newest episode of “Speculum,” I speak with Teri Plante, a Health Outreach Nurse with Interior Health who has special interests in HIV screening and education. We discuss her role as a Health Outreach nurse, providing education and harm reduction while being mindful to a patient’s social determinants of health. For all the budding health care professionals like myself (or the seasoned ones that could use an update), Teri also gives pointers on how to have effective discussions about sexual health with patients of any age group.
