This topic is designed for providers who offer HIV testing, or who assist with the notification and counselling of partners who may have been exposed to HIV. Time will be allotted to discuss effective, non-coercive techniques used to support individuals to voluntarily identify sexual and injection drug-use partners who might benefit from testing. Participants will have the opportunity to practice skills in a safe and supportive environment.
This topic can be offered as part of a comprehensive HIV testing workshop, or as a stand-alone session. If requested as a stand-alone session, participants should have either completed a HIV pre- and post-test workshop or online course offering, or have experience talking with clients about HIV testing.
