Ask, Screen, Intervene

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.

On The Frontlines - A Training for Community HIV/AIDS Workers

This one day, free training is offered by Denver Public Health, Infectious Disease Clinic in partnership with key community agencies.  The intended audience is any community organization, agency, or healthcare staff members who work with people living with HIV/AIDS.  The purpose of the training is to review timely HIV related topics and network with others in the field.

Based on feedback from last year’s training, the planning committee has designed this year’s On The Frontlines with new options.  If you are only seeking basic information about HIV, you are welcome to only attend the morning sessions.  If you are primarily interested in more advanced information, you may choose to just attend the afternoon sessions.  Or, if you are like the majority of people who find a refresher on HIV helpful and also relish in more advanced topics, we hope you will plan to join us for the entire day.  Regardless of which option you choose, we invite all attendees to join us for lunch. 

This program is targeted toward non-clinicians and does not provide CME or CNE.
