An understanding of HIV and AIDS is essential for the health care worker in the state of Florida, where nearly half of those with a positive diagnosis live. To meet effective infection control and clinical management continuing education requirements, this course includes training on modes of transmission of HIV/AIDS and STDs, current treatment, infection control procedures, testing, counseling, the Florida law, and reporting. With this knowledge, clinicians can more effectively address barriers to patient care and address the patient's concerns with appropriate resources and information. A patient case study will be highlighted for practical application.

The foundational knowledge of HIV and acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) will allow the clinician to explain the definition, disease processes, and current trends that impact the health care worker and clinical management of the patient.

2. HIV, AIDS, and STDs: Transmission and Considerations

This chapter highlights HIV, AIDS, and sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) and the modes of transmission of these diseases. Knowledge of this information is necessary as it impacts infection control and helping our patients to decrease exposure and risk of contracting diseases.

3. Testing and Treatment Considerations

In Chapter 3, the Florida laws regarding testing, confidentiality of test results, treatment of patients, counseling, reporting, HIV testing for pregnant women, and partner notification will be utilized to identify the recommended actions for the clinician and the patient alike. Ensuring coverage of preliminary versus confirmatory results and subsequent reporting rules, and notification of school superintendents if school-age children are involved will be discussed.

4. Infection Control and Clinical Management

This chapter discusses the application of information for effective infection control and clinical management of the patient. Occupational and nonoccupational exposure will be discussed, along with best methods of response. A patient case study and examples of resources to address barriers in clinical management will be presented.
