ASHM Removing Barriers project

The project is a collaboration of health services, research and community partners to address systemic barriers, stigma and discrimination experienced by people living with HIV, hepatitis B and hepatitis C accessing the health system. An online learning module for primary health care nurses will be designed to raise awareness of stigma and discrimination experienced by people living with blood borne viruses, to enable nurses to reflect on potential structural workplace barriers and individual perceptions. Learnings from the module will encourage opportunities for practical and procedural change within primary health care settings where required.

Your role as a Primary Health Care Nurse

Primary health care nurses are integral to the care and management of people living with HIV, hepatitis B and hepatitis C. At national and state/territory levels, greater emphasis and funding is being placed on client management within primary health care settings. Correspondingly, advances in treatment and management of people living with blood borne viruses enable people to seek healthcare within the community as well as or instead of a tertiary setting.

Your feedback is valuable

ASHM would like to invite you to participate in 1 of 2 focus groups being facilitated during the APNA State of the Art Conference in Hobart. Feedback obtained from the focus groups will assist the project working group to better design an online learning module for primary health care nurses that is guided by you, the nurses that will be completing the module.
