NEW September 2015 Training from the CDPHE

Overview of Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis (PrEP) for Non-Clinical Providers 

September 23, 2015
9:00am - 5:00pm

This 1-day course provides participants with an overview to the role non-clinical providers may play in the implementation of a PrEP Support Program in Colorado as it is currently evolving.  Participants will examine the place for PrEP in the world of HIV prevention; build their knowledge about general PrEP facts needed to interact with clients in a non-clinical capacity; and review and practice the use of a Colorado Brief PrEP Screener and Brief Counseling model (CRAFTS) in order to begin to identify candidates and discuss their interest in a referral.  The class will also provide a general introduction to referral and payment options, basic adherence barriers and approaches, and strategies to reach those most at risk.  This course is intended to be the first course in PrEP Support implementation, with additional training needed to develop specific roles (such as navigation, adherence counseling, or recruitment strategies).
