Date: June 7th, 2022
Time: 11 am – 12 pm PT/2 pm – 3 pm ET
Please join the National Clinician Consultation Center in partnership with the Health Resources and Services Administration HIV/AIDS Bureau and Bureau of Primary Health Care for this interactive webinar for clinicians.
HIV Response has been identified as one of four key strategies to Ending the HIV Epidemic in the United States. Health care providers play a critical role responding to HIV outbreaks in people who use drugs. During this webinar, we will describe the NCCC’s approach to supporting clinicians with implementation and optimization of HIV prevention and treatment strategies for persons who use drugs including PrEP, substance use disorder (SUD) treatment, and other harm reduction practices. Based on real cases, we will discuss key interventions for responding to the overlapping HIV and SUD syndemic, and share ideas on overcoming clinical, informational, and cultural challenges in building capacity to respond to this syndemic.
At the end of this webinar, participants will be able to:
- Identify HIV trends impacting the care of people with SUDs across the U.S.
- Describe key components of HIV prevention in persons who use drugs, including screening, testing, and pre- and post-exposure prophylaxis medications
- Discuss OUD treatment and other harm reduction strategies as a means of HIV prevention, engagement, and treatment
