The Prevention Community of Practice (CoP) provides an opportunity for Federally Qualified Community Health Centers (FHQCs) in Philadelphia, Baltimore, and Washington, DC to learn from each other regarding increasing HIV testing, diagnosis, and prevention, including the provision of pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP). Health Resources and Services Administration’s (HRSA) Bureau of Primary Care and HIV/AIDS Bureau are supporting this initiative to partner with Ending the HIV Epidemic-funded FQHCs in the MAAETC region.
Barbara Wilgus, CRNP, a Women's Health Nurse Practitioner and Program Administrator for the STD/HIV Prevention Training Center at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) will review best practices for sexual history taking as a tool to inform HIV prevention discussions with patients.
As a result of attending this program, participants should be able to:
- Describe best practices for taking patient's sexual history
- Apply lessons learned to their work setting
- Incorporate quality improvement measures to increase PrEP implementation at their site
CME and nursing credits will be available. Faculty and program planners have no financial disclosures.
