YOUTH AT RISK. Preventing Hep C among young people who are injecting

Full day workshop designed in collaboration with the requesting service, or individuals can attend scheduled workshops in their LHD

If you are working with young people then this workshop is for you!

The Youth at Risk training aims to increase the knowledge and confidence of youth workers about hepatitis C and other blood borne viruses so they can effectively engage with young people who may be exposed to injecting drug use.

During this workshop you will:

  • Understand the hepatitis A, B & C  viruses and their distinguishing differences including transmission, testing and treatment
  • Understand the context for young people and hepatitis C including predictors for young people transitioning into injecting
  • Learn new and engaging educational activities you can use to deliver health education to young people
  • Understand harm reduction strategies, specifically needle and syringe programs and the benefits they provide to young people
  • Meet your local NSP worker and get a ‘show & tell’ experience with injecting equipment to familiarise yourself with it as well as learning appropriate disposal methods
  • Learn the impact of stigma and discrimination and how these create barriers for young people accessing support or approaching youth workers to discuss issues related to hepatitis C or injecting
  • Be part of interactive and dynamic discussions about what your service can do to support young people in this area using credible case scenarios as a launch pad.

This workshop is more than the nitty gritty – you’ll leave the workshop feeling comfortable being the person people come to with their hep C questions.

As part of this FREE workshop you will receive:

  • A statement of attendance
  • Heplink and The Champion e-newsletter subscriptions
  • Lunch + morning & afternoon tea (depending on length of the session)

These workshops can be delivered at your workplace, at Hepatitis NSW, or a regional centre with a minimum of 6 participants.
