Description

HIV Awareness Training

HIV hasn't gone away. One person every day is diagnosed with HIV in Scotland. The good news is, a lot has changed in our ability to prevent, test and treat the disease. Unfortunately, general awareness and understanding of HIV hasn’t kept up with medical advances.

This all-day introduction will help you learn about HIV basics, including prevention, transmission, testing, and treatment. It will help you prevent HIV transmissions, manage risks, support people living with or at risk to HIV, and increase your confidence in speaking to others about the issues surrounding the virus such as stigma and discrimination.

Completion of this course will allow participants to:

- Understand how HIV is and is not transmitted.

- Employ a variety of HIV prevention methods.

- Help others to access and utilise HIV prevention methods more effectively.

- Manage risks appropriately.

- Sign-post to testing services.

- Manage confidentiality and disclosure issues in the workplace, in accordance with current legislation.

- Provide support for people living with or at risk to HIV.

- Feel confident with updated knowledge on HIV according to the latest research.

- Challenge stigma, discrimination and myths about HIV.
