This course will help prepare you to provide optimal HIV prevention, screening and treatment in any primary care setting. You will learn practical tips for performing a brief sexual health assessment and how to provide HIV and sexual health services in a culturally sensitive manner to people of all genders and sexual orientations. These learning modules were created and funded by Urban Indian Health Institute, a Tribal Epidemiology Center that serves Urban Indian Health Programs across the nation. They recognize research, data, and evaluation as indigenous values while utilizing the strengths of western science and staying grounded in traditional ways of knowing. Their mission is to decolonize data, for indigenous people, by indigenous people. Each of the modules includes a written transcript of the audio/narration that is approximately 30-40 minutes in length.

This course is designed for staff who provide medical care to American Indian and Alaska Native patients. This includes physicians, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, nurses, medical assistants and other staff involved in patient care, including clinical providers working with Indian Health Services, Tribally Operated Clinics and Urban Indian Clinics.
