Patient-Centered HIV Care in Rural and Underserved Communities

Patient-Centered HIV Care in Rural and Underserved Communities:
Strategies for Improving Communication, Engagement, and Support

Although there is no current cure, HIV can be managed with appropriate treatment and care. Advances in testing, prevention, and treatment can curb the HIV epidemic, yet stigma, lack of awareness, and systemic inequities present barriers to access. Further, HIV has a disproportionate impact on certain populations, particularly in rural and underserved communities of the US.

This 3-part activity series will move through a real-world patient case scenario demonstrating step-by-step how to deliver a positive HIV test result, start early treatment, and provide follow-up care. Expert faculty will provide commentary at the end of each video about best practice strategies for HIV care linkage, retention, and engagement.

This series is jointly provided by Postgraduate Institute for Medicine and RME Collaborative.
