The Prevention IS Care workshop, Incorporating HIV Prevention into the Medical Care of Persons Living with HIV was designed to translate scientific evidence into practical tools for providers to use with HIV-infected patients with the hopes of influencing the adoption of a new standard for routine care, helping physicians better work with patients in reducing risky transmission behaviors.
The workshop outlines strategies providers can use to initiate open conversations with their HIV-infected patients and screen for potential risk behaviors. Although there is no specific formula on how to integrate these principles, suggested tools, structural interventions and aids will be demonstrated during the workshop.
