The purpose of this introductory training is to provide HIV clinicians (including, but not limited to physicians, dentists, nurses, and other allied medical staff, therapists and social workers, and counselors, specialists, and case managers) with a detailed overview of substance abuse and HIV among older adults. The curriculum reviews important epidemiological data focused on older adult substance use trends and HIV prevalence; reviews standardized screening and assessment techniques to support the move to improve treatment effectiveness; and concludes with evidence‐based and promising clinical strategies.
