Webinars for Work

The thing about working in HIV and HCV support and services is you rarely wind down, as many PAN members can attest. Webinars can be a great way to gain knowledge and pause in your everyday of doing. Here are a few you might have missed that are worth a mention. All are about an hour; professional development delivered fast.

Sexual Transmission of Hepatitis C: Research Update and Implications for Gay Men’s Health Providers

Our colleagues at Pacific Hepatitis C Network and the Community Based-Research Centre for Gay Men’s Health were part of this webinar which looks at research on sexual transmission of hep C (HCV) “with the goal of better equipping public health, healthcare providers and gbMSM with updated information.”

We know that opioid use goes beyond people who are typically portrayed in the media. Responding to the overdose crisis in BC: implications for gay men’s health providers looks at drug use among MSM and how fentanyl and the overdose crisis is impacting this population. Dr. Mark Gilbert of the BC Centre for Disease Control and Dr. Jane Buxton, also of the BC CDC, talk about gay men’s health and harm reduction in the context of the fentanyl crisis. This is webinar came out of the Community Based-Research Centre for Gay Men’s Health.

Although pharmaceutical companies and some researchers alike will say that having HIV is not such a big deal these days thanks to treatments, those living with HIV have the experience of living on those drugs, and it’s not always rosy.
