The Utah Department of Health, in collaboration with the Denver STD/HIV Prevention Center and the Utah AIDS Education & Training Center would like to invite you to participate in a special training focused on incorporating HIV prevention into the medical care of persons living with HIV.
The training is Ask, Screen, Intervene (ASI)- Effective Prevention in HIV Care.
Clinicians: ASI is a skills-based course intended for Physicians, Nurses, Advanced Practice Nurses, Physicians Assistants, and others currently involved in HIV clinical care or who see HIV+ patients in their practice.
Clinicians, 4/12/2012, 7:30am – 12pm: http://denverptc.org/class_information.html?id=616
Non-clinical staff: A shorter version of the training will be offered in the afternoon for non-medical providers, such as case managers and other non-clinical staff involved in HIV care or who see HIV+ patients in their practice.
Case managers, 4/12/2012, 1:00-3:45pm: http://denverptc.org/class_information.html?id=617
The ASI training will be held on April 12, at the University of Utah Guest House & Conference Center (Alpine Room), 110 S Fort Douglas Blvd in Salt Lake City. There is no cost for this training, a continental breakfast will be provided and continuing education certificates are available upon completion.
What is Ask, Screen, Intervene (ASI): ASI is a course developed by the National Network of Prevention Training Centers and the AIDS Education & Training Centers that focuses on incorporating HIV prevention into the medical care of persons living with HIV. The 3-module curriculum focuses on: 1.) helping providers understand why HIV prevention should be a routine part of HIV care; 2.) building their skills to assess a patient’s level of risk and readiness to change/adapt risk reduction strategies; 3.) utilize referrals and partner services. I like to describe it as motivational interviewing with an HIV care focus.
We hope you can join us. If you have any questions let me know or feel free to contact Katie Amaya at 303-602-3637 or katie.Amaya@dhha.org
