About this Independent Study
An important part of HIV prevention and treatment is connecting clients with care and helping them to remain in care. Some clients whose gender does not fit into the easy classification of male or female are denied service or feel so unwelcome that they avoid seeking treatment altogether. Take this one hour course to learn more about gender and how you can help people whose gender does not conform to common expectations.
As a result of completing this course, clinicians, counselors, community health workers, and other health care staff will be able to discuss aspects of gender identity, gender discrimination and gender-related health disparities and how they impact clients. They will practice skills for assessing and treating gender-diverse clients who may be at risk for HIV or who have HIV.
Who Should Attend
Nurses, clinicians, counselors, community health workers, and other health care staff who work with clients who may be at risk of HIV or who have HIV.
