- Saturday March 24 2012
- 0930 – 1600
- The Robens Suite, Guy’s Hospital, London SE1
A study day for Health Advisors, Doctors, Nurses and Counsellors working in Sexual Health and HIV.
The day will explore the issues faced by clinicians in a climate of increased STI and HIV infection, emerging STI drug resistance and a growing concern over HIV and Hep C co-infection among gay men.
We will consider the challenging social and psychological contexts of MSM who have unprotected sex and look at new ways of working with men at high risk; and explore why it seems health promotion and contact tracing are failing us at a time when we need them to work more than ever.
Should we be thinking PEP or PrEP?
Taking place at the top of the world’s tallest hospital building!
