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
