Welcome to ...

"HIV Matters! Foundations for practise"

This is an interactive on-line presentation of a classroom session I frequently present across a wide range of nursing, midwifery and paramedic science programmes at the University of Greenwich. This Foundations for Practise session will also be supplemented with others, such as "Patient Pathways for Care", "National and International", etc. but the core foundations are good across all of the specific individual module focused ones.
