Fundamentals of HIV and Sexual Health: Expanding the Scope of Primary Health Care Nurses
- : Townsville QLD 4810
ASHM invites Primary Health Care Nurses whose patients have, or are at risk of, blood borne viruses (BBVs) and sexually transmissible infections (STIs) to enrol in this training, which involves a combination of online and face-to-face education.
This training session will enable you to
increase your scope of practice in HIV and
sexual health. Aligned with the Sexual
Health Nursing Competency Standards
for Primary Health Care Nurses (2013), the
course will provide you with the clinical
skills, confidence and knowledge to
expand your role in caring for the sexual
health of your patients and community.
In addition, there is a session focusing on
methods to advocate for your expanded
role within your workplace and resources
to assist you to negotiate this process.
The workshop, coordinated by ASHM, has
been developed through collaboration
between the NSW STI Programs Unit,
APNA and ASHHNA. This course has been
endorsed by APNA and allows
participants to claim 6 CPD hours.
This is a free course for QLD nurses. The
cost for the course for non-QLD
participants is $250 (ASHM members) or
$280 (non-ASHM members). Priority to
attend the course will be given to QLD
