The Changing Landscape of HIV Care: What Ethical Practitioners Need to Know Now
Description: In the thirty-six years since the Human Immunodeficiency Virus was identified as the cause for AIDS the sociomedical landscape around the disease has changed dramatically. This presentation will address clinical work with both HIV+ and HIV- clients, examining messaging on the syndrome as a continuum. The new reality is that transmission is not simply tied to a positive or negative status. Treatment, medication, identity, and legal considerations intersect creating a complicated fluid status for clients and clinicians to ethically navigate.
Objective(s): At the conclusion of this workshop, participants will be able to: explain developments in pharmacotherapy for prevention and treatment of HIV/AIDS, and how to apply these to sexual education and clinical practices.
