*FREE* bitesize version of Terrence Higgins Trust’s ‘Cant Pass It On’ training

Offered by HIV Prevention England, on Monday 23 May from 6pm until 7.30pm. It will be of interest to a range of health professionals including within primary, community and hospital settings, including those who work within sexual health services.

 

The importance of Can’t Pass It On/Undetectable=Untransmittable (U=U) and how to discuss this with your patients

 

We’re telling everyone: someone living with HIV and on effective treatment can’t pass it on. It's one of the most positive messages someone living with HIV can hear. It reduces the stigma around HIV and provides motivation to stay on treatment to keep both themselves and their sexual partners healthy.

In this online webinar featuring Professor Alison Rodger (Professor of Infectious Diseases and HIV at University College London), Dr Melissa Gardner (GP and Director of the social enterprise Sexual Health in Practice (SHIP), Bruce Richman (Founding Executive Director of the Prevention Access Campaign which launched the U=U movement.), Dr Michael Brady (Medical Director at Terrence Higgins Trust) and a panel of people living with HIV you will be able to:

  • Learn about the evidence behind U=U
  • Understand from a patient’s perspective how to convey the U=U message to your patients.
  • Understand the impact of U=U on people living with HIV
  • Know how and when to raise U=U with your patients.
  • Know how to talk about U=U to patients coming in for an HIV test
  • Know why U=U is a game changer in the fight against HIV around the world
  • Have the opportunity to ask any questions you have about U=U/Can’t Pass It On to our panel of experts.
