The SHBBV Managed Care Network delivers training throughout the year with the aim to develop a confident & competent workforce.

You can download our Sexual Health and Blood Borne Virus Training Programme April 2021 – March 2022 here

Our training is available for clinical & non-clinical professionals across all agencies and where appropriate volunteers, other members of the public & specific groups. Currently, our training courses are only available to participants within the area of Tayside.

The safety of participants and tutors is of great concern to us.  Because of this and due to the current circumstances surrounding the pandemic, we have decided that our programme for April 2021-March 2022 will be delivered online. We apologise for any disappointment this may cause.

All our training will:

  • be undertaken by skilled and confident trainers
  • be based on the best epidemiological and research evidence available
  • be evaluated and updated accordingly
  • demonstrate gender sensitive practice
  • address inequalities
  • be multi-faceted and delivered through appropriate partnership working arrangements

Our training supports delivery of the Scottish Government Sexual Health & Blood Borne Virus Framework Outcomes (2015-2020 update):

  • Fewer sexually transmitted infections; fewer unintended pregnancies
  • A reduction in the health inequalities gap in sexual health
  • People affected by blood borne viruses lead longer, healthier lives
  • Sexual relationships are free from coercion and harm
  • A society and culture whereby the attitudes of individuals, the public, professionals and the media in Scotland towards HIV are positive, non-stigmatising and supportive

We can also adapt and bring training to you:

We are aware that departments/organisations are all under time pressure and find it increasingly difficult to release staff for training.  If you have a large group of staff who cannot attend scheduled sessions, we can consider bespoke training to meet the specific needs of your department.  For more information, contact us at  tay.bbvmcn@nhs.scot
