ASHM HIV s100 Prescriber Course (Formerly the Short Course in HIV Medicine)

The ASHM HIV s100 Prescriber Course provides medical practitioners with comprehensive training in the science of HIV, current pharmacology, monitoring and treatment, as well as the complicating factors surrounding HIV management.

This is a 2 day course that builds on the knowledge covered in the one-day Introduction to HIV Care for General Practitioners course. There are 4 sessions that are held face-to-face on both a full-time and part-time basis. The course also includes self-directed pre-disposing and reinforcing learning activities and is accredited for RACGP QI&CPD points.

Please note that completion of the Introduction to HIV Care for General Practitioners is a pre-requisite for enrolling in The ASHM HIV s100 Prescriber Course.

Course outline:

Session 1 Initiation of antiretroviral therapy
Session 2 Monitoring the patient on therapy
Session 3 Toxicities and adverse events 
Session 4 Special scenarios
Completion of the 2 day course and the associated assessment, in addition to the prerequisite Introduction to HIV Care for General Practitioners, enables GPs to apply for the right to prescribe s100 drugs for HIV in NSW, ACT, VIC and SA. The Certificate of Attainment from the course is recognised by many other bodies in Australia and New Zealand.

Participants in this program are provided with a range of HIV resources including ASHM publications, resources for patients, product information and NSW Health Department circulars relating to the management of HIV.

In order to maintain HIV s100 prescriber rights community medical practitioners must participate in the ASHM mentoring program and engage in ongoing continuing medical education (CME) relevant to the use of s100 drugs for the management of HIV. ASHM conducts a range of face-to-face CME activities for community prescribers and provides online education such as conference webcasts.
