This course aims to assist HIV care providers in learning new techniques to incorporate important intervention methods during the medical visit (even in the constrained care setting), in order to help their patients reduce risk behaviors. It is targeted to medical care providers of HIV positive patients (e.g., MDs, NPs, RNs, PAs); however, persons who deliver prevention messages (e.g., case managers, social workers, health educators) may also benefit from the information and techniques delivered throughout the course. Topics covered are: brief screening for HIV transmission risk behaviors; identifying and treating other STDs; communicating prevention messages; discussing sexual and drug-use behaviors; referring selected patients for additional prevention interventions and services; facilitating partner notification, counseling, and testing of sex and needle-sharing partners of infected persons.

This is a collaobration with Texas Department of State Health Services.
