The PAETC HIV Learning Network (HIVLN) is a CME-accredited telehealth HIV mentoring, training and consultation program for California and Arizona clinicians managing a small number of HIV infected patients. HIVLN provides free, live, on-line mentoring and consultation sessions for participating clinicians.
The goal of the program is to expand access to high quality HIV care and improve health outcomes for HIV-infected people residing in historically underserved communities in California.
- Disseminate and discuss new guidelines and treatment advances
- Convene online discussions among health care providers to share challenging or instructive cases with colleagues.
- Provide longitudinal learning opportunities to build capacity, expand knowledge, and develop new skills.
- Develop an informed support system and community of learners with guidance from HIV specialists.
- Provide free consultations on specific patients with written recommendations from HIVLN faculty.
HIVLN is a HRSA-funded initiative for health care providers who serve in rural or high-need underserved urban communities in California. Participants should meet the following eligibility requirements set by HRSA:
- Do not receive direct Ryan White funding (e.g, Part A or Part C funds)
- Provide care in a rural setting
- Suburban and Urban sites may be eligible if they serve high risk, high need populations. Participation will be decided on a case by case basis. Contact the Program Coordinator for more information.
- Manage a small number (less than 25) of HIV-infected patients or do not currently provide HIV care, but plan to begin caring for HIV-infected patients.
Interested participants who may not satisfy the above eligibility requirements can contact the Program Coordinator, to discuss your needs. Eligibility may be waived under certain circumstances by HRSA.
