Program Description

Prevention strategies are critical in halting the spread of HIV infection. Knowledge of HIV status, condom use, avoidance of injectable drugs, limiting the number of sexual partners, and use of pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) are all integral components of effective HIV prevention. Unfortunately, such interventions are currently not being utilized to best effect, as the racial disparities that have been present from the start of the epidemic persist. Identifying patients likely to benefit from HIV-prevention strategies and providing these individuals with access to these interventions is crucial.

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 critical need for HIV-prevention practices for individuals at increased risk for infection
  • Identify individuals who are most likely to benefit from HIV-prevention strategies
  • Address general barriers to the implementation of HIV-prevention services within their practice
  • Implement strategies to provide culturally competent education and counseling about HIV-prevention strategies to patients at risk for HIV infection
