Training (Bloodwise)

Our training program is called Bloodwise and this program provides community education and training across the state.

Bloodwise sessions focus on three main elements: HIV, Hepatitis B and C, and stigma. 

We can provide these sessions as part of an event you are conducting (such as a conference or workshop) or a complete program. We develop and deliver our training with other services including clinicians and people living with HIV or viral hepatitis. 

The focus of Bloodwise is preventing and treating blood borne virus (BBV) and sexually transmissible infection (STI).

WHO WE TALK TO

Our sessions can be for any organisation or group. We can provide advice in work places or community organisations. We also train specialised groups such as teachers, police, housing and medical support organisations. We talk to peak bodies with a focus on helping ensure that organisations servicing clients who may be affected by these viruses are able to provide up-to-date and appropriate care and advice.

WHAT WE COVER

We discuss HIV, hepatitis B and hepatitis C individually to ensure that we cover both the similarities and variations of each virus. We talk about these BBV and STIs in terms of infection, transmission, treatment, cure and prevention. We discuss PREP and U=U for HIV, treatments for curing hepatitis C and free and subsidised vaccines for hepatitis B.

View more information on these viruses in our resources and info section.
In our sessions we also talk about stigma and the challenges faced from both sides with challenging, overcoming and, often, living with the stigma related to carrying these viruses.

Importantly, we can tailor our training to any organisational needs.

Red Thread

Red Thread acknowledges the continuing custodianship of land by Australia’s Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. We pay respects to elders past, present and emerging and the cultural and spiritual practices of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.

Yesterday was the first day of National Reconciliation Week. This year's theme is 'In This Together'. The dates remain the same each year; 27 May to 3 June. These dates commemorate two significant milestones in the reconciliation journey— the successful 1967 referendum, and the High Court Mabo decision respectively. It is a time for all Australians to learn about our shared histories, cultures, and achievements, and to explore how each of us can contribute to achieving reconciliation in Australia.

Red Thread

Today is the launch of Australia's first LGBTIQ+ Domestic Violence Awareness Day, aiming to raise awareness of Domestic Violence (DV) in LGBTIQ+ communities, remember LGBTIQ+ victims of DV who have lost their lives, recognise LGBTIQ+ survivors, and acknowledge the struggles of those LGBTIQ+ people who may currently be in an abusive relationship. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Recent studies show that up to 62% of LGBTIQ+ people have experienced domestic violence within their relationships, yet awareness of the issue and reporting rates are still incredibly low with only 6% being reported to police.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
