Here's what some previous attendees have said:
“The BBV course provided by the WA AIDS Council has given me invaluable skills to be able to discuss pre and post-test counselling to staff that have encountered an occupational exposure to blood or bodily fluid in the work place. I am able to deliver this information in a calm, confident and concise manner whilst catering to the staff member’s needs. I would recommend this course to my fellow colleagues.”
“I think the training is a fantastic introduction to BBV’s and the important role clinicians play in informing individuals about testing and preparing them for their results. Whilst many clients are motivated to test because of a risk exposure others may not perceive that they have been at risk and so a positive result can be unexpected and shocking. This is where BBV training comes in handy in being able to deal with these situations and make sure the client is supported throughout the process of diagnosis and referral.”
