Online Training for Clinicians

Join an HIV ECHO

One way we foster collaboration is through offering teleECHO programs – friendly, interactive online learning environments where clinicians and staff serving American Indian and Alaska Native patients can connect with peers, engage in informative presentations, collaborate on case consultations, and receive mentorship from clinical experts from across Indian Country. Indian Country ECHO provides no cost trainings, Exit Disclaimer: You Are Leaving  as well as technical assistance and capacity building Exit Disclaimer: You Are Leaving  services. We also facilitate The Indian Country ECHO Collective Exit Disclaimer: You Are Leaving  – a community of predominantly Indigenous organizations that provide ECHO services across the globe.

Clinical Presentations from 2012 HIV/STI Partners Workshop, Scottsdale

In support of ongoing local and regional efforts, the HIV Program held a two-day training of HIV and STD colleagues in May of 2012. A faculty of 34 experts conducted 28 sessions for the 120 participants.


One of the IHS HIV/AIDS program objectives is to assist our health professionals maintain HIV/AIDS competency and high quality care. Disease specific competence (as well as culturally appropriate care) is a critical component of overall strategic planning to support this quality of care.


HIV/AIDS treatment and care requires knowledge of accepted guidelines as disease specific competence is a priority area of overall planning. Locating clinical guidelines for treatment and care is a critical component of quality health care.


The Community Readiness Model (CRM) is a nine stage, multi-dimensional model to facilitate community change. Other resources and tools come courtesy of the Mountain Plains AIDS Education and Training Center.

HIV Testing and Guidance

The IHS HIV Program supports the CDC recommendations and (if possible given resource constraints and potential jurisdictional issues) suggests each facility attempt to move toward more routinized HIV testing.
