2015 HIV/AIDS Care in the Correctional Setting: Conference Presentations
Corrections Preceptorship
Corrections Preceptorship

This two-day educational program is a prison-based preceptorship for health care providers working in corrections. Preceptees will observe and work with an HIV expert preceptor in a Washington State prison for one day and then spend one day in a large urban HIV clinic. Preceptorships will be designed to meet the specific needs of individual trainees based on their current level of experience and practice settings.  Preceptors will focus on the care and treatment of HIV-infected patients within the context of a comprehensive, continuum of care model.  A combination of didactic and experiential instruction will include: HIV risk assessment, HIV testing strategies, diagnosis of primary HIV and opportunistic infections, therapeutic interventions (i.e., drug treatment regimens including managing side effects, salvage therapies, and adherence strategies), release planning, prevention with positives and confidentiality. Instruction will also include strategies for effectively addressing patients' psychosocial needs related to mental health and substance abuse issues.  Participants will observe at least 4 HIV-infected patient work-ups under the guidance of the preceptor.

Continuing education credits are available as well.
