The Metro Centre Health trainers outreach team speaks to men in a range of social, sexual and clinical settings, encouraging them to reflect on their lives, particularly in the areas of sexual and mental health and physical well-being. To facilitate this, the team uses smart phones to deliver a quick questionnaire called the BASK Inventory. This assesses a man’s behaviour, attitude, skills and knowledge with respect to sexual health and well-being. The BASK Inventory helps identify needs and generates a bespoke action plan to address them, referring onto services and setting a follow-up date. Clients work with the team on an on-going basis and complete further BASK Inventories with the aim of continued improvement.
