Improving UDS Clinical Quality Measure Performance: Increasing HIV Prevention in Primary Care

Primary care plays a key role in ending the HIV epidemic. The Ending the HIV Epidemic initiative launched across HHS in 2019, setting forth four key strategies also called the “four pillars” of ending the HIV epidemic. Primary care in federally qualified health centers figures centrally into these efforts, evidenced by the addition of several HIV screening and prevention measures and metrics in the Uniform Data System (UDS) reporting. This webinar reviewed the outcomes of the first year of HIV Screening and Prevention reporting on the UDS, highlight opportunities for quality improvement, and discussed funding opportunities.

Youth and PrEP: Considerations for Prescribing PrEP in People 15–24 Years of Age

Overview: PrEP is an effective HIV prevention strategy for youth 15–24 years of age—a population that makes up one in five new HIV diagnoses in the U.S. Challenges related to medical, privacy, social, and economic factors can complicate providing PrEP care.

Target Audience: Primary and family providers with young patients, nurses, social workers, ASO/CBOs that serve youth, case managers, health educators, CHWs, as well as youth and parents of youth.

Educational Objectives: Upon completion of this activity, participants will be better able to:

  • Recognize barriers to PrEP access among adolescents and young adults
  • Identify at least two strategies for increasing access to PrEP for young adults
  • Develop at least two strategies to maximize PrEP adherence

Telehealth & HIV after COVID-19

Telehealth & HIV after COVID-19

Telehealth is here to stay. What's happening now? What’s next? This webinar focuses on what HIV care agencies need to consider as they transition from their pandemic-focused HIV work to looking ahead to integrating telehealth within their regular operations to get ‘the right mix’ of in-person and telehealth appointments to maximize outcomes and maintain sustainable billing.

In this 90-minute session, view an expert panel discussion on matters like selecting telehealth approaches, staffing and training, best practices in working with patients, and more.

This training event is in a series for Ending the HIV Epidemic jurisdictions, convened by TAP-in, the HRSA-funded Technical Assistance Provider Innovation Network providing support for EHE jurisdictions.
