Overview: Each 2.5-hour, interprofessional and multidisciplinary regional workshop will allow clinicians to interact with local faculty and experts to explore best practices in screening for HIV, HCV, and STI during routine care as well as strategies to enhance counseling and treatment for patients with HIV. This forum promotes the idea of bringing clinicians together to form local, cohesive, strategic care teams to optimize care for those living with HIV and/or opioid addiction.

Learning Objectives
After attending this educational activity, participants should be able to:

  • Integrate HIV, HCV, and STI screening into routine care for patients who inject drugs
  • Describe evidence-based approaches to test for HIV and counsel individuals before and after testing
  • Incorporate evidence-based antiretroviral treatment regimens into practice for patients living with HIV
  • Assemble multidisciplinary care teams that incorporate opioid-dependence counseling and treatment into a comprehensive, local HIV prevention strategy

Target Audience
This activity is intended primarily for rural, US-based primary care clinicians, nurses, and mental health professionals, as well as for rural infectious disease specialists and primary care clinicians who specialize in HIV management.

Series Overview/Statement of Need
Since December 2014, 181 new cases of HIV have been confirmed in rural Scott County, Indiana. The overwhelming majority of these new cases are associated with the injection of opioids, and 92% of individuals are coinfected with HCV. The cohort of new HIV cases are young (< 32 years old) and white, and around one-half are female, which is categorically distinct from the typical urban injection drug user living with HIV (male, African American, and older than 35 years). The factors that have contributed to Scott County, Indiana’s, HIV outbreak are common to many rural communities in the US and include high rates of poverty, unemployment, and opioid addiction, as well as physician shortages. The prevention of future HIV outbreaks in rural areas of the US requires solutions that engage local experts, clinicians, and mental health providers to target the high rates of HCV infection tied to opioid addiction.
