The CDC estimates more than 1 million people 13 years of age and older are living with HIV infection in the United States, including nearly 162,500 who are unaware they are infected. Some licensure boards in Kentucky require continuing education that addresses HIV/AIDS. This course sets the stage for addressing those requirements in the context of the history of the infection in this country, risk factors for infection, testing, and strategies for preventing transmission. In addition, prevention of opportunistic infections and community resources available (including the Kentucky needle exchange program) to patients are discussed.


The goal of this HIV/AIDS continuing education program is to update Kentucky healthcare professionals’ knowledge of the care of patients with, and issues surrounding, HIV/AIDS and to meet the Kentucky state requirement for continuing education in this area for licensure. After studying the information presented here, you will be able to:
  • Describe basic medical and epidemiological information about HIV and relate the diseases and conditions it can cause.
  • Explain methods of transmission and prevention of HIV and current recognized methods of medical treatment.
  • Summarize the management of HIV in the healthcare workplace and other working environments consistent with Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) Bloodborne Pathogens Standards.
  • Briefly describe the professional, ethical, and legal standards applicable to a caregiver of a person with HIV.
  • Appraise the appropriate attitudes and behaviors of caregivers toward people infected with HIV.
  • Relate the comprehensive human services available to assist those living with HIV infection in Kentucky.
