Creating an Inclusive Space - CNE

One of the key strategies for providing successful HIV treatment is engaging and retaining individuals in care. Creating a culture that recognizes the diversity of persons living and aging with HIV and fostering an environment that is welcoming and safe is a key element in retaining individuals in care. Additionally, making sure that services are accessible for older adults who may be challenged with mobility or other sensory impairments is another element in creating an inclusive space.

This series of modules will highlight considerations for primary care providers, long-term care facilities, and acute care hospitals for creating an inclusive space.

Learning Objectives

  • Identify strategies for adapting health services to meet the needs of adults aging with HIV.
  • Describe the significance of creating an inclusive space on retention and engagement in care for persons with HIV
  • Discuss ways in which community-based providers, long-term care facilities, and interprofessional teams can address stigma and barriers to care.

Nursing Continuing Professional Development (NCPD) Information

You may notice the terms nursing continuing professional development (NCPD) replacing nursing continuing education (CNE). This is primarily a change in terminology as directed by our accrediting body, the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC). This change is accepted by licensing boards and others who require proof of continuing education. Contact hours will continue to be the measure of credit earned, one contact hour of NCPD is the new term for one hour of CNE. Generally, one hour of content equals one contact hour.

The Association of Nurses in AIDS Care (ANAC) will provide 1.5 contact hour of NCPD ( formerly known as CNE) on completion of this module. To claim NCPD, participants must receive a passing score of 80% on the module post-test and complete a brief evaluation.
