POSTING DATE: February 27, 2017
POSITION: PART-TIME ACADEMIC INSTRUCTOR

TERM: June 1 – August 31, 2017

PAY RATE: According To CUPE Collective Agreement

WORK ASSIGNMENT: The part-time academic instructor will be responsible for teaching NURS5899.03 – Sexual Health & Counseling in Cancer (Summer term of the academic year 2016-2017)

Cancer causes wide-ranging impacts on sexual health and wellbeing and numerous studies have identified that people affected by cancer want support, education and counselling in this area. While health professionals consistently acknowledge that sexuality is within their scope of practice, few health professionals consistently assess or intervene in sexual health problems in cancer settings. The “Sexual Health & Counseling in Cancer” course is designed to provide graduate students in the health professions with the knowledge and skills to intervene with the sexual problems that arise in cancer.

The framework of this course encourages course participants to: 1) address and confront the ways in which their own, and society’s, attitudes and biases impact their practice; 2) increase knowledge regarding the ways in which people affected by cancer maintain healthy sexuality or, in contrast, struggle with sexual challenges; and 3) develop knowledge and skill with regard to assessment and interventions for common sexual health issues that arise in cancer care. Attention to issues of diversity will be integrated throughout.

This is a 3 credit hour course consisting of 12 seminars over a 10-week period on Tuesdays and Thursdays, 16:05 – 17:55, from June 14, 2017 until August 16, 2017.

WORK ASSIGNMENT: The part-time academic instructor will be responsible for teaching NURS5899.03 – Sexual Health & Counseling in Cancer during the Summer term of the academic year 2015-2016.

Cancer causes wide-ranging impacts on sexual health and wellbeing and numerous studies have identified that people affected by cancer want support, education and counseling in this area. While health professionals consistently acknowledge that sexuality is within their scope of practice, few health professionals consistently assess or intervene in sexual health problems in cancer settings. The “Sexual Health & Counseling in Cancer” course is designed to provide graduate students in the health professions with the knowledge and skills to intervene with the sexual problems that arise in cancer.

The framework of this course encourages course participants to: 1) address and confront the ways in which their own, and society’s, attitudes and biases impact their practice; 2) increase knowledge regarding the ways in which people affected by cancer maintain healthy sexuality or, in contrast, struggle with sexual challenges; and 3) develop knowledge and skill with regard to assessment and interventions for common sexual health issues that arise in cancer care. Attention to issues of diversity will be integrated throughout.

This is a 3 credit hour course with 120 minute weekly online seminars.

This contract runs from May 1, 2016 until June 30, 2016. The part-time academic instructor reports directly to the Associate Director, Graduate Program.
