HIV s100 Prescriber Course

The HIV s100 Prescriber Course is designed to support GPs in managing and treating HIV in the general practice setting, providing them with the opportunity to establish relationships with local specialist services for ongoing mentoring and referral.

  • Module 5 – Monitoring the Patient on Therapy: including screening for other infections, frequency of monitoring, adherence and test variability.
  • Module 6 – Toxicities and Adverse Events: including, toxicities associated with first-line regimens, co morbidities and long term adverse events.
  • Module 7 – Special Scenario: including salvage therapy, opportunistic infections, mother to child transmission, and PEP.
  • Module 8 – Clinical Skills Development: this module offers a choice of self-directed activities

Upon successful completion of this training and the associated case assessment, medical practitioners may apply for authority to prescribe section 100 drugs for the management of HIV in Australia.
