Family Planning Victoria provides a secondary consultation service for families, carers and professionals to build their knowledge, skills and capacity to support and educate their client/family member in relation to their reproductive and sexual health, sexuality and relationships.

The secondary consultation service involves an FPV Educator working to support the referrer in relation to a specific client. The client is not present during the consultation. The aim of the consultation is to clarify pertinent issues and to provide advice and resources for the client’s ongoing support and management. Sessions usually are an hour long and you can book multiple consultations if required.

How much does it cost?

  • $250.00 per hour gst free

Inclusion Criteria

Inclusion criteria for secondary consultations:

  • the consultation is in reference to an individual client (for consultations in reference to multiple clients please refer to Tailored Workforce Development Sessions)
  • has a cognitive disability

What is the process?

All initial enquiries for secondary consultations should be directed to the Disability and Community Educator on T\9257 0130 or E\ disability@fpv.org.au

Once the consultation is complete, the referrer will be provided with a summary and suggestions for future practice.
