Code: BH/18/011 Blood Borne Viruses & Safer Injecting

We suggest you complete the two day drug & alcohol basic awareness course before attending any of the more specialised full day courses. This is to equip you with more general knowledge and skills in preparation for learning about the more in depth topics. Don’t hesitate to contact the Health Promotion Team on 01273 731900 if you would like to discuss this further.

Brighton and Hove has a significant drug using population, for whom related health-harms, including blood-borne viruses and overdose, are an issue. The aims of this course are to give an overview of HIV, Hepatitis B and C transmission, prevention and epidemiology, and to explore how and why vulnerable groups are particularly affected. This course focuses on raising awareness of these issues amongst professionals, in order that they and their service users are fully informed. City-wide screening provision, inoculations and treatment services are promoted, and safer injecting practices highlighted.
