Overview

A​SHM recognises the vital role that nurses play in the testing, diagnosis, treatment and care of those at risk of and living with HIV, viral hepatitis and STIs

ASHM’s Nursing Program supports the role of nurses working in HIV, viral hepatitis and sexually transmissible infections.

We collaborate with key partners and stakeholders across the sector to support nurses.

ASHM is committed to expanding the scope of practice for nurses in the sector.

We do this by providing a range of nursing education and supporting affiliated organisations to develop competency standards and guidelines​ which assist to define the role of the nurse.

All nurses are invited to become ASHM Members.

You can browse for nursing-related Resources, Training and Guidelines below.
