Although effective treatments have made HIV infection a manageable chronic disease, many people living with HIV also present co-occurring mental disorders, and addictions. Medication adherence and other health behavior challenges can complicate treatment, highlighting the need for a skilled workforce (psychologists, social workers, psychiatrists, substance abuse counselors, and other front line providers) that can work collaboratively with health care and public-health professionals to respond to the psychosocial challenges that accompany having or being at risk for HIV.
This webinar will highlight the latest in approaches to HIV prevention, care and treatment and provide a case example of how providers of medical and behavioral health can work together to improve outcomes for people living with HIV.
Learning Objectives:
At the end of this webinar, participants will be able to
  1. Understand the latest medical approaches to HIV testing, and treatment and their impact on mental health and well-being.
  2. Explain the link between biomedical aspects of HIV with mental health, well-being and chronic disease management.
  3. Identify the role mental health care provider’s play in linking people living with HIV/AIDS into care, and supporting adherence to medical regimens.

04/13/16: The NHAS & Social Work Practice

APR
13

When: Wednesday, April 13, 2016, 12:00PM-01:15PM Eastern Time

Using the 2020 update of the National HIV/AIDS Strategy (NHAS) as a framework, this session is intended to expand the knowledge and capacity of social workers and allied mental health providers to address the mental health and psychosocial issues confronting people living with and affected by HIV and AIDS. The 2016 Social Work Month theme “forging solutions out of challenges” reflects the historical role of social workers and allied mental health providers in working toward the NHAS goal of “Getting to Zero” for new HIV infections. With approximately 55,000 new HIV infections in the United States annually, the updated NHAS framework is a call to action. This webinar will provide a high-level overview of the updated NHAS, the HIV continuum of care and social work practice implications, and provide concrete recommendations on meeting the needs of clients, communities and the workforce. Participants should come prepared to share practice strategies and dialogue.

Presenters: Susan M. Gallego, MSSW, LCSW and Evelyn P. Tomaszewski, MSW

At the end of this Webinar, participants will be able to:

  • Understand the implications of the National HIV/AIDS Strategy on social work policy and practice
  • Discuss the latest evidence on HIV/AIDS transmission and prevention for individuals, families, and communities
  • Describe the role of social work in addressing health inequities in HIV/AIDS care and behavioral health services
