An evaluation of several interventions designed to improve the cultural competence of health professionals found that there was evidence to support that the trainings improved the attitudes and skills of health professionals (Beach et al., 2005). As a result, APA's Behavioral and Social Science Volunteer (BSSV) Program has designed a pilot training for clinicians that will revisit the patient-provider interaction and provide clinicians with the skills necessary to make meaningful connections with HIV/AIDS patients who deal with substance abuse and/or mental health issue; assist in moving the patient along the full continuum of care including linkage to care, treatment, retention in care and medical adherence; and build trust between the patient and provider.
- Relevance of high impact prevention and the national HIV/AIDS strategy.
- Basics of the patient-provider relationship.
- Effective patient-provider relationships.
- Provider self-management tools.
