New training aims to address HIV related stigma in healthcare

Posted on: July 27th, 2023 by Louise Garrahan No Comments

Developed by NHS Greater Manchester Integrated Care, in partnership with Manchester Foundation Trust, George House Trust and Dibby Theatre, the resource is the first of its kind, providing the opportunity for learners to get up to speed with the latest facts around HIV, including the importance of early diagnosis and effective treatment.

The session features people living with HIV talking through their experiences from diagnosis to everyday management, as well as sharing examples of great care received by health staff.

Aimed at all patient-facing health and care colleagues as well as wider colleagues working in primary care and frontline roles, the training covers:

  • The current landscape of HIV transmissions and the challenges faced
  • The impact of HIV stigma
  • Normalising HIV as a long-term manageable condition
  • Living with HIV – importance of compassion, empathy and openness in healthcare and treatment

Long-term conditions training moves to the next level

Posted on: November 2nd, 2022 by Kieron Bradshaw No Comments

New intermediate level sessions are now available within our PRosPer Long-Term Conditions elearning programme, to support staff who care for people with a range of long-term conditions.

The 4 new sessions will help colleagues build on their knowledge of personalised care and support planning, along with prehabilitation and rehabilitation for long-term conditions.

The expansion follows on from the launch of our foundation level sessions, which gave an introduction to personalised care, prehabilitation and rehabilitation.

The programme will be helpful for any staff caring for patients with a range of long-term conditions, and has been developed by Health Education England (HEE) and HEE elearning for healthcare, using materials provided by Macmillan Cancer Support.

With the population living longer there is a rise in the proportion of people living with multiple long-term conditions. A personalised approach to care and support is vital to ensure that people’s needs are fully identified and planned for, taking their strengths and developed abilities into account.

Core elements of the training include needs-led assessment, supported self-management and behaviour change.

The training will be helpful for all colleagues who directly support, or work with teams who support people with long-term conditions.
