Post Exposure Prophylaxis (PEP) for HIV: An overview for Health Professionals

SHINE SA, October 2018

Access to PEP after an eligible exposure to HIV is a medical emergency. Your response to patients presenting for PEP can support them in preventing a life-long infection with HIV.

A brief, online training module has been created to support health professionals to:

• Increase your understanding of PEP as an emergency presentation and vital HIV prevention measure
• Assist you in providing patients with optimal care and support when seeking PEP in the emergency setting

This course is designed for Medical Officers and Registered Nurses in hospital emergency departments and targeted primary care clinical and rural sites that hold PEP starter packs in South Australia.

  • To register for the free PEP training module, please email us here with your name, position and workplace.

SA Health has contributed funds towards this program.

Rules about sex: getting them right (Training module & CDs): full-day practical module

 

SHine SA, February 2017

A CD-based resource has been produced to assist workers and carers to assess knowledge and teach rules about touch and sexual behaviour and strategies for sexual safety and improved relationships. In this practical full-day module, you will be supported to apply the resource practically and ethically, using your own laptop.

The aims are to:

> prevent vulnerable people with a disability from involvement with the law and possible long-term consequences of this

Suitable participants include: developmental educators, service coordinators, special education workers, therapists, disability advocates, police and parents.

The first CD contains a printable manual including information sheets that help interpret South Australian laws about sexual behaviour in plain English using CAN and SHOULD NOT statements and questions. These relate to consent, age of consent, private places, sexual harassment, sexual abuse, assault and safer sex.

Both CDs contain line drawings which can be used individually, in sequence, or layered electronically or manually to create new resources which are tailored to individual needs.

Facial expressions can be altered to change the emotional tone of illustrations. Images can be combined with photographs of real places and real faces. Potential resources to be produced include flashcards to assist conversation, illustrated social stories, comic strip resources or posters. Final products can be easily sent to users as an email attachment.

The module emphasises sensitive and ethical use of the images as well as practical application to solve the educational needs of individuals.
