BBV Informed Consent Training has been run by the WA AIDS Council for over 12 years. This interactive 2 day training is aimed at health professionals or counsellors equipping them with skills and knowledge to provide an effective BBV pre-test discussion. For the first time, the course went regional and provided the training in Geraldton to 12 staff members from different departments of Geraldton Regional Hospital.
This collaboration with Geraldton hospital was over 9 months in the making and thanks to the support of Mandy Pirrottina Clinical Nurse Specialist Infection Prevention and Control of WA Country Health Service Midwest, saw us in Geraldton on the 27th & 28th of February.
The feedback from the attendees was very positive;
"While the focus of the course is HIV, the learning outcomes can be easily adapted for any chronic illness. It really exceeded our expectations and I recommend this training to either yourselves, Learning and Development or your public health services.”
