1:00pm - 4:15pm
3 credit hours total:
- 3 NBCC credit hours
- 3 NCSAPPB approved credit hours of substance use specific (SS) & Bloodborne Pathogens (HIV)
We will cover the basics of HIV/STD/Hepatitis prevention and transmission along with updates about testing and treatment options in order for professionals to be able to educate patient/client populations on these subjects, and to refer them to community services.
Participants will review and gain a basic knowledge of these subjects in order to reduce stigma among patients and clients as part of the National HIV/AIDS Strategy. Participants will be able to ask questions in order to clarify any concerns on these subjects.
Participants will learn about resources in western NC to help their clients get connected.
Light snacks, coffee, tea and water will be available.
We look forward to seeing you there!
