Cardea is offering a free online continuing education opportunity on “HIV Care and Sexual Health Assessment for American Indian and Alaska Native Patients.” The course features four modules:
- Module 1: Culturally Proficient Sexual Health Care for People of all Genders and Sexual Orientations
- Module 2: Sexual Health Assessment
- Module 3: Talking with Patients about HIV
- Module 4: Biomedical Prevention of HIV (ART, PEP and PreP)
This course will help prepare you to provide optimal HIV prevention, screening and treatment in any primary care setting. You will learn practical tips for performing a brief sexual health assessment and how to provide HIV and sexual health services in a culturally sensitive manner to people of all genders and sexual orientations. Cardea designed this four-module online learning course in partnership with the Urban Indian Health Institute, a division of the Seattle Indian Health Board (SIHB/UIHI). Each of the modules includes a written transcript of the audio/narration that is approximately 30 minutes in length.
This course is designed for staff who provide medical care to patients in a variety of clinical settings. While created specifically for staff who provide care for American Indian and Alaska Native patients, many of the core concepts, video-taped scenarios, and approaches are also relevant to health care providers who serve diverse patient populations. Physicians, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, nurses, medical assistants and other staff involved in patient care will benefit from this new course on conducting gender-inclusive sexual health assessment and providing HIV care.
