Program Description

Part of a regional series designed to reduce disparities in HIV care, this workshop convened clinicians on the front lines of delivering care to patients at high risk for HIV infection. The activity begins with a review of the rationale for targeting HIV prevention strategies to certain high-risk populations and an exploration of behavioral and biomedical prevention options. The centerpiece of the activity is the use of breakout sessions, during which small groups of learners discuss overcoming barriers to providing HIV prevention services, particularly the unique barriers that exist in the southeastern United States.

Intended Audience

Primary care providers including MDs/DOs, nurse practitioners (NPs), physician assistants (PAs), nurses, pharmacists, and other clinicians in the southeastern United States who treat patients at risk for HIV infection.

Educational Objectives

At the conclusion of this activity, participants should be better able to:

  • Identify individuals at increased risk for HIV infection
  • Utilize evidence-based strategies for HIV prevention among patients most likely to benefit
  • Identify reasons for the low uptake of HIV pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) among men who have sex with men (MSM) of color
  • Address barriers to the provision of HIV prevention services in high-risk populations
