CATIE is partnering with THN to deliver a training course for you and your colleagues on HIV and hepatitis C Testing. Register here.
CATIE’s HIV and Hepatitis C Testing course aims to develop in-depth knowledge of testing technologies, approaches to testing, and how all service providers play an important role in reaching people with HIV and hepatitis C. Throughout this course, participants learn about the importance of testing for HIV and hepatitis C, what testing technologies exist in Canada, and key considerations to support people throughout the testing process. This course will not teach participants how to test, rather, by exploring different approaches to testing and the barriers that exist, service providers come away with strategies to facilitate testing and linkage to care, treatment, and prevention in their communities and with their clients.
This course is geared towards front-line service providers who work with people who can benefit from HIV and/or hepatitis C testing. Participants should have a basic understanding of HIV and hepatitis C before beginning this course. Front line service providers who are not testers themselves, rather, who have a role in supporting people to be connected to testing, treatment, and linkage to care, would benefit from this course.
