Reach Health Promotion Innovations

Mobile technology for health behaviour change

Sexual health, social media and mobile technology workshop

REACH HPI will be presenting a half day satellite workshop at the upcoming SiREN Sexual Health Symposium in Perth. The theme for the symposium is ‘Building the foundations for innovation’, and the workshop will cover the use of social media and mobile technology in sexual health promotion, including regulations, ethics, privacy and evaluation. REACH HPI’s Becky White said, “We’re delighted to have the opportunity to talk about the role that new technologies can help with important sexual health messages, and the potential for reaching, and engaging with people through these media.” James White will also be participating in a panel discussion in the symposium proper, on the use of SMS and social media in clinical followup.
