HIV/HCV Co-infection: An AETC National Curriculum
The goal of this curriculum is to provide an evidence-based online curriculum for healthcare providers and trainers of healthcare providers to increase their knowledge on human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) and hepatitis C virus (HCV) co-infection among people of color in the United States and its territories. Topics covered include prevention, screening, diagnosis and treatment recommendations as well as barriers and other co-factors that may impede optimal treatment outcomes for co-infected people of color.
A team of AETC Program faculty and staff identified six core competencies for providers treating co-infected people living with HIV (PLWH). Within each topic area, there are multiple lessons.
To earn free continuing education credits (CME or CNE), you must register and complete the course modules (30 minutes and 0.5 CEUs per module) on the Rutgers University Center for Professional Development website.
If you are not interested in receiving CE credits, you may view the all course module content on this website.
