HIV Treaters Meetings

The HIV Treaters Meetings are MATEC-WI’s signature program for HIV care providers in Wisconsin, linking clinicians from across the state via Webex videoconference for a one-hour, case-based discussion of current issues in HIV care each month. Facilitated by key leaders in HIV care, the meetings feature lively discussions of current issues in HIV care and are an important resource for both experienced and new HIV providers.

Started in 2001 as a venue for a small group of infectious disease physicians in Milwaukee to discuss complex cases of HIV infection and ensure consistent standards of care across the city, the HIV Treaters Meetings have evolved into a statewide, interprofessional community of practice, with more than 50 HIV care team members participating each month. The HIV Treaters Meetings are supported in part by the Wisconsin AIDS/HIV Program and made possible through collaborations with providers and staff at each of the meeting sites.

Description

The HIV Treaters Meetings are an ongoing series of one-hour case discussions focused on HIV infection. HIV treating clinicians present two cases at each meeting for discussion by the group. Sites are connected in real-time via Webex video conference technologies. View the 2020-2022 HIV Treaters Flier (pdf).

Intended Audience

The target audiences for this activity are physicians, advance practice nurses, physician assistants, nurses, pharmacists, social workers, case managers, and dentists who provide care to individuals with HIV infection. The clinician participants include both primary care providers and HIV or infectious disease specialists. The audience includes both UW and non-UW clinicians, staff and clinical trainees.

Objectives

As a result of participation in this educational regularly scheduled series, learners will be able to:

  1. Apply new or improved skills related to the complex medical issues and recommended patient-centered treatment strategies for individuals with HIV infection.
  2. Recall the roles, responsibilities, and contributions of each HIV care team member in providing patient-centered care.
  3. Recognize the importance of teamwork, communication, professionalism, and interprofessional collaboration in the service of providing high quality patient-centered care.

Financial Support

We gratefully acknowledge financial support from the Wisconsin Department of Health Services.
