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.
