Culturally Relevant Linkages to Care Webinar
Date: Aug 29, 2013
Time: 01:00 PM MDT
Duration: 1 hour
Host(s): Jamie Folsom
Linkage to care is a vital component of the prevention and treatment landscape, however, American Indian and Alaska Native people are displaying some of the lowest rates of linkage to care. Participants on this webinar will gain an understanding of what constitutes effective HIV linkage to care, and explore an existing framework that NNAAPC has created and begun to diffuse with tribal communities across the country. By walking through NNAAPC's linkage to care model Positive Wellness, this webinar will explore some of the challenges of engaging patients into care (e.g. system navigation, stigma and trust), as well as highlight strengths-based and culturally appropriate strategies for engaging AI/AN individuals living with HIV into care.
