Although overall rates of new human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infections have declined sharply in the United States over the past decade, marked disparities in the transmission and incidence of new infections persist in many regions of the United States, particularly in the South. Black and Latino populations in Louisiana, Georgia, Mississippi, and Florida, for example, continue to be disproportionately affected, and do not receive appropriate information on HIV-prevention strategies from their clinicians. This CME-certified webinar, directed to primary care clinicians and other providers engaged in the care of patients, focuses on a partnership between CrescentCare, a New Orleans-based health clinic, and the Southeast Louisiana Area Health Education Center, to provide HIV-prevention services—including access to primary care and specialty providers, culturally competent dialogue in care settings, and education and counseling—to rural and urban underserved populations in Louisiana. This collaboration may serve as a model for other communities nationwide.
As a result of participating in the activity, learners should be better able to: Describe the rationale for national directives for focused HIV-prevention interventionsIdentify patients who are likely to benefit from HIV-prevention strategiesImplement HIV-prevention services for appropriate patientsEmploy culturally competent educational strategies to improve the uptake of prevention strategies among patients at increased risk for HIV infection
