ASHM Stigma and Discrimination Video Project

Dear all,

The Australasian Society for HIV, Viral Hepatitis and Sexual Health Medicine (ASHM) is looking for people with Hep B in Sydney to participate in their new project. Details below.

ASHM has been funded by the Australian Government Department of Health and Aged Care
to produce a series of short micro-learning training videos. Some of these videos explain the
social norms theory and the evidence from recent research, whilst others focus on contact
hypothesis and the lived experience of people experiencing stigma and discrimination in
healthcare settings.

ASHM is seeking expressions of interest from people living with HBV willing to share their
stories about their positive and/or negative experiences in healthcare settings. We are also
interested in suggestions on how healthcare centres can improve services.

What participants need to know
• Participants will be filmed over two hours on a single day
• The film will be edited into smaller units
• The videos will be housed on ASHM’s training site, which is freely available and
accessible through the internet
• The finished videos will be made available as short stand-alone micro-learning videos
and may be incorporated into longer training courses owned and run by ASHM
• Participants will be paid for their time, including any meeting held before filming as
well as the filming time

ASHM will:
• Treat participants and their image with dignity and respect
• Pay participants for taking part
• Share the finished video with the participant before publication

If you are interested in participating in the stigma and discrimination videos, please click on
