HIV infection remains a complex, challenging illness and an area of very active research and discovery. The knowledge base in HIV medicine is evolving rapidly, as is HIV clinical practice. Efforts to educate healthcare providers who care for patients with HIV has needed to keep pace. The FXB Center is committed to supporting those efforts by offering continuing education opportunities for healthcare providers in New Jersey.
Each June, the New Jersey Department of Health, Division of HIV, STD and TB Services and the FXB Center sponsor the HIV Clinical Update: The New Jersey Statewide Symposium in Northern NJ and in December, the Kennedy Health Alliance-Infectious Diseases in Voorhees, NJ and the FXB Center sponsor the Annual HIV Medical Update in Southern New Jersey. In the Fall of each year, the FXB Center and the Family Centered HIV Care Network sponsor the HIV Case Study Day.
Although the needs of the conferences continue to evolve over the years, the goal is keeping clinicians and those involved in direct patient care a part of continuing education to ensure the most recent advances in medicine are disseminated.
The HIV Medical Update Series includes one-hour presentations on eight topics that have been developed to provide timely, expert, and accessible training on HIV care to physicians, advanced practice nurses, nurses, physician assistants, medical case managers and other healthcare professionals. These presentations are delivered on-site to eligible organizations or agencies. Presentation topics include the following:
