HIV/AIDS Case Manager Preceptorship Program

The NW AETC offers a three-day HIV Case Manager preceptorship at two locations in Seattle:  Bailey-Boushay House and the Madison Clinic at Harborview Medical Center.  Patient contact will occur through care conferences that involve the program's multi-disciplinary team, as well as individual interaction with social workers as they conduct rounds, perform assessments, address patient concerns and plan discharges.  The training will emphasize various assessment skills needed to help identify and address patient conditions.  Depending on the specific needs of the patients in residence, areas of concentration may include cognitive status, mental health concerns, ADL capacity, discharge potential, spiritual/cultural aspects, legal issues, and family/support system interactions.  Staff will provide opportunities for discussion and questions throughout the day.
