HIV/AIDS Clinical Preceptorship Program for Pharmacists
Northwest AIDS Education and Training Center
The Washington State Office of the Northwest AETC is affiliated with the HIV clinical center of excellence in Washington State, the Harborview Medical Center's Madison AIDS Clinic in Seattle. This Ryan White CARE Act Title III clinic has been in existence since 1991and is the largest HIV clinic in the Pacific Northwest, serving over 1,300 HIV-infected patients per year. The NW AETC has successfully collaborated with the Madison AIDS Clinic since 1992 to develop and implement trainings and clinical preceptorships for health care providers.
The training program is intended for pharmacists working in hospitals, ambulatory clinics and the community setting in Washington, Alaska, Montana, Idaho and Oregon (WAMIO) region. While pharmacists with limited HIV/AIDS knowledge and experience are especially encouraged to participate, all levels of knowledge and experience are welcome.
Each participant will have the opportunity to interact with clients in an HIV Clinic setting. These sessions are a part of the clinic’s HAART Adherence Protocol, which serves to educate clients about medication regimens before beginning therapy. Course objectives will be further developed through prepared case studies as well. Interaction with clients and case study discussions are highlighted as the best means of applying knowledge and learning new skills.
ACPE credit is available for this 8 hour (one day session).
