 REGISTER AT: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/healthliteracy_hiv
 

This professional development training will examine health literacy and HIV within communities of color. Limited health literacy has been associated with poor medication adherence, missed doctor’s appointments, lack of follow through on tests or referrals, and being less knowledgeable about HIV and related diseases. This can lead to low utilization of HIV services or accessing preventive care, and overall poor health outcomes. In this training, we will discuss the relationship between health literacy and health equity, and the cultural, social, and environmental factors that impact health literacy. Participants will learn skills to improve patient-provider communication by applying health literate approaches and techniques to help clients obtain, process, and understand HIV information and services. In addition, we will discuss strategies for developing health literate organizations through culturally appropriate systems changes.  This training is open to a broad range of students, researchers and health professionals including clinicians, mental health counselors, case managers, community health outreach educators, health literacy practitioners and others.

 

The training is a collaboration between Tufts Health Literacy Leadership Institute, Multicultural AIDS Coalition (MAC) and John Snow, Inc. (JSI).

 

 Learning Objectives

  1. Describe the relationship between HIV, health literacy and equity for communities of color
  2. Identify strategies for improving patient-provider communication and HIV services
  3. Engage in dialogue to promote health equity and health literate organizations

LOCATION:National Events DESCRIPTION:

Please help keep our expert PEPline clinicians right where they are needed: answering your calls!

We have recently experienced deep funding cuts that threaten our ability to provide the timely advice clinicians are used to when they need it. Despite the invaluable service we provide and increasing demand for our expert consultations, our federal funding has dramatically declined. We need your help to continue providing clinical decision-support for managing occupational exposures throughout the country and keep our national workforce transmissions at zero – no new occupational HIV transmissions.

We are asking you to donate and/or to forward to your networks who might support our crowdfunding campaign. In order to reach our fundraising goal of $200,000, we need donations from everyone – healthcare workers, clinicians, healthcare facilities, employers and leaders in the field. Can you help us sustain the PEPline?

Donate now through our crowdfunding campaign or directly through our website. The Clinician Consultation Center is a nonprofit organization: all donations and pledges are fully tax deductible.

 

On behalf of the thousands of exposed healthcare workers and clinicians who benefit from the PEPline, as well as from our committed staff: Thank you for your generosity!
