Program Description

Although overall rates of new human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infections have sharply declined in the United States over the past decade, marked disparities in the transmission and incidence of new infections persist. Gay and bisexual men, particularly those who are black, Latino, and/or aged 13 to 24, continue to be disproportionately affected. In many cases, individuals at greatest risk for HIV infection do not receive adequate information about prevention strategies and are not offered these services. Most HIV prevention strategies that are prioritized by the national health organizations focus on HIV testing, condom distribution, and pre-exposure prophylaxis. However, none of these interventions address stigma, which makes the uptake of these interventions very difficult, particularly in underserved populations.

To improve upon these practice gaps, this educational activity will provide primary care and internal medical clinicians with practical strategies for improving access to HIV prevention strategies within their communities. Interventions for culturally-competent patient education will be provided, as will resources to facilitate the linkage of appropriate candidates with potentially lifesaving services for HIV prevention.

Intended Audience

Primary care and internal medicine clinicians (MDs/DOs, physician assistants [PAs], nurses [RNs], and nurse practitioners [NPs])

Educational Objectives

As a result of participating in the activity, learners should be better able to:

  • Describe the rationale for national directives for focused HIV-prevention interventions
  • Identify patients who are likely to benefit from HIV-prevention strategies
  • Implement HIV-prevention services for appropriate patients
  • Employ culturally competent educational strategies to improve the uptake of prevention strategies among patients at increased risk for HIV infection
