Types of Training

​​Flexible delivery of education and training for the HIV workforce is extremely important.

We are able to provide this flexibility through:

  • Face-to-face 
  • Online learning (accredited and non-accredited)
  • Live and pre-recorded webinars.

​Webinars

We provide live accredited webinars so that practitioners can participate in the training and ask questions. These are often delivered by local experts and recognisable clinicians.

We also record these webinars so that they can be viewed after the live event and points can be accrued for these viewings as well. To view our webinar suite, please visit our ASHM Webinar Page.

 

ASHM’s work in HIV

ASHM works in collaboration with sector partners, including professional organisations, research institutes, community organisations and people living with HIV, toward ending HIV transmission in Australia. We do this through collaborating on jurisdictional and national committees, jointly developing clinical education programs, projects , resources, and working in partnership on policy, recommendations and clinical guideline development.

ASHM has taken a leadership role in advancing HIV policy in Australia. Most recently the ASHM PrEP Clinical Guidelines were a key document that supported the approval of HIV PrEP on the PBS. ASHM also oversees key resources for HIV clinicians including the ASHM ARV Guidelines, HIV Management in Australasia and the National HIV Testing Policy, Find out more about ASHM’s work in policy and advocacy here
