    Co-design and consumer engagement: successes in sexual health

    Co-design and consumer engagement: successes in sexual health

    Welcome to the newest episode of the new Sydney Sexual Health Centre podcast!
    You might be familiar with some of the innovative services that have contributed to Sydney Sexual Health Centre's reputation as a leader in sexual health and HIV. We've pioneered the community-based peer-led testing model of a[TEST] and disrupted routine screening with the introduction of fast-track Xpress clinics. But you may not know that these innovative programs and services have come out of a co-design process involving consumer and community stakeholders.
    We're hearing a lot about co-design and co-production in healthcare lately and we want to share some examples of how involving health consumers in design of our services has worked for us.
    This episode features Vickie Knight, who is our Clinical Nurse Consultant, and Shaun Powyer, who is manager of a[TEST] at ACON.

    What do health professionals need to know about PrEP?

    What do health professionals need to know about PrEP?

    Welcome to the newest episode of the new Sydney Sexual Health Centre podcast!
    PrEP, or pre-exposure prophylaxis, was listed on the Pharmaceutical Benefits Scheme (PBS) in Australia in April 2018. This is a big step that has the potential to move PrEP prescribing out of specialist sexual health clinics and into primary care settings, making it more widely available to more people who need it.
    But we're only a few months in and many people may have questions and concerns. So we're asking: what do health professionals need to know about PrEP?
    This episode features Sydney Sexual Health Centre's own Dr Rick Varma and Dr Mark Bloch from ASHM.
