+ Identify central objectives of test discussion & post test counselling
+ Understand framework for facilitating change
+ Understand principles of sexual health counselling & education
+ Identify attitudes towards people engaging in high risk behaviours
+ Recognise opportunities to educate clients about BBV transmission risks & safer behaviours

Here is what our clients say about the course:
"The course was excellent! Although I am a GP registrar. The training covered the dialogue of pre- test counselling & post test discussion in a way I hadn’t come across. It was very useful & practical and the strategies learnt I can adopt straight away in my practice.
Useful for not just BBV but also delivering any bad news. Motivational interviewing is an area that I have previously struggled with and it gave me the language and tips & resources to decrease my discomfort. My knowledge of HIV & BBV was updated. So much of my knowledge was outdated - back to my Med School days! I didn't realise so much was actually involved in informed consent. I will recommend it to everyone"
"A very good training. Would be a good idea to get other GP’s to be trained though RACGP.”
"A very useful and practical course. Very well organised and relevant to my practice. The length of training was appropriate with adequate information and excellent facilitation.”
"The trainers were excellent at providing information, facilitating discussion and giving real life answers to queries about previous experiences and how to do it better.”
"Excellent facilitation. Trainers had excellent knowledge of subject matter.”
