HIV and Behavioral Health: What Providers Need to Know
Presented by The Pennsylvania/Mid-Atlantic AIDS Education and Training Center.
Date: Thursday, July 30, 2015 Time: 12:15pm (EST) to 1:00pm (EST)
Mental health and substance use disorders are associated with poor health outcomes for people living with HIV and can accelerate the progression of HIV disease, increase the risk for other diseases, and shorten lifespan. People living with HIV are also more likely to experience mental health problems. For people not infected with HIV, mental health and substance use disorders are linked to behaviors that increase risk for HIV infection. Providers in any health or human service setting have an opportunity to improve patients’ health outcomes by advancing the way in which they address the interconnectedness of HIV and behavioral health.
After participating in this webinar, you will be able to:
• Discuss common behavioral health issues experienced by people living with HIV;
• Describe HIV risk factors for people with mental health and substance use disorders; and
• Identify strategies to address behavioral health and HIV with patients (HIV- and HIV+) in multiple care settings.
PARTICIPANTS: This webinar is designed for health care providers including physicians, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, nurse midwives, nurses, counselors, social workers, case managers, and other staff who interact with patients, who work in multiple types of settings including primary care, geriatric care, maternal and child health care, STD/HIV & reproductive health care, mental health, addictions, health departments, hospitals, health centers, schools, and community health settings.
