Individual Learning Session: HIV and Aids

At the end of this session you will:

  • will have a basic understanding of the impact of HIV and AIDS in the UK and will know which groups are most affected. However, the learner will understand that HIV and AIDS is not limited to particular groups of people and that it can affect anyone, subject to certain types of intimate exposure
  • will understand the ways in which HIV is commonly transmitted and in order to combat fear and prejudice, the learner will understand that HIV is not transmitted by everyday human touch and general care activities, but know that it is important in their work to regard all blood and body fluids and tissue as potentially infectious
  • will understand the need to embed anti-oppressive practice into their work as second-nature and to meet the requirements of relevant legislation, such as the Equality Act 2010. The learner will understand that stigma and discrimination and breaches of confidentiality can damage the quality of care provided for a person with HIV and can undermine prevention strategies and deter people from seeking the help and support they need
  • will have some appreciation of the treatments available for HIV infection and why - despite advances in treatment - some people are still dying from HIV related illnesses
  • will understand that the medical, psychological, emotional and spiritual needs of a person with HIV are complex and present many challenges and that it is vital to be honest, recognise your own limitations and share the work as part of an interdisciplinary care team that may include local voluntary sector HIV support organisations
  • will have evidence that they have applied their learning to their practice and will have evaluated their own further learning and skills development needs with regards to the topics covered
