Videos for Health Professionals

Resources have been developed for Doctors, Nurses and Health Workers working with young Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people in remote communities. Information is provided with key sexually transmissible infection (STI) and blood borne virus (BBV) data and with tips for addressing common barriers to testing.

Health professionals who are new to working in remote communities can find the context challenging, and be unsure of cultural sensitivities. To assist we have produced videos providing background on the STIs and BBVs affecting remote communities. The videos include information on epidemiology, with experienced Doctors, Nurses and Health Workers sharing their strategies for normalising offering testing, communicating with young people about sexually transmissible infections, sex and sexuality issues.
