Timely diagnosis and clinical management of HIV & STI, HBV and HCV will, quite simply, prevent deaths. This course will give primary care practitioners in Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Services the knowledge with which to screen at-risk patients, accurately diagnose infection, assess phases of disease, treat and monitor patients, appropriately refer to specialist care, and improve health outcomes for those living in the region.

This interactive workshop will consolidate learning gained through question and answer sessions, case discussions, facilitated small group work and short presentations giving attendees an opportunity to discuss practical strategies with peers and specialists.

Learning Objectives:

• Identify appropriate patients to opportunistically test for BBV and STIs and demonstrate increased confidence initiating conversations about sexual health and performing diagnostic tests

• Manage patients according to recommended treatment guidelines for common STIs and initiate contact tracing and patient referrals where necessary

• Identify which tests are to be ordered to make a diagnosis and interpret serology to determine if a patient is susceptible, vaccinated, previously exposed or has acute or chronic infection

• Know how to access local service data from Girudala systems

• Understand how to integrate sexual health checks into the MBS 715 Adult Health Check
