The Ontario HIV and Substance Use Training Program provides training to substance use, mental health and allied service providers in Ontario in order to increase knowledge of HIV/AIDS and to promote skills development.
OHSUTP is a service of Fife House and is funded by the AIDS Bureau, Ministry of Health and Long-term Care. A provincial Advisory Committee consisting of representatives from substance use and AIDS service organizations provides input into programming issues.
The facilitator made the environment relaxed and comfortable to talk about issues that are not always easy to talk about. They created an atmosphere that encouraged questions and conversation and that challenged us in a positive way to look at our own personal biases and the impact they could have on our ability to work effectively and in a support manner with our clients. The information presented was clear and concise. I found the information on Hep C and HIV as it relates to pregnant women especially helpful as I have many women ask me for information and before the training I rarely was able to provide good information to them.
