International Nurses Day – HIV and Sexual Health Nurses

Jacinta and Rachel recognise International Nurses Day (May 12) by speaking to Dr Liz Crock AM and Mark Thompson about their experiences as nurses working in HIV care and more.

Dr Liz Crock AM talks about her experiences as a nurse in the early days of HIV. She worked at the  Fairfield Infectious Diseases Hospital in the HIV ward, and has continued to dedicate her work to addressing HIV stigma.

Mark Thompson is an STI and HIV specialist nurse, and an LGBTI specialist nurse practitioner candidate. Mark discusses the importance of queer-affirming sexual health care and his experiences as a nurse in various settings.
