Sexual Health and Blood Borne Viruses: Learning Needs Report


17 Sep 2021 by Scottish Drugs Forum
This report from the Scottish Drugs Forum assesses the learning needs of the Sexual Health and BBV sector across Scotland, based on an online survey that was completed by 270 frontline workers across the NHS, third sector and local authorities. Its aim was to give an overall perspective and understanding of the training needs and knowledge gaps of workers in relation to sexual health and blood borne viruses. Results showed that respondents felt most knowledgeable in the causes and effects of stigma, and the least knowledgeable in the elimination of hepatitis C - face-to-face training was the preferred first choice of learning for 75.4% of respondents.
