There is overwhelming research evidence showing that people living with HIV/AIDS achieve better healthcare outcomes when they are treated by clinicians that are knowledgeable in HIV, as well as when they are treated in their own communities. The HIV/AIDS TeleECHO Clinic unites a multidisciplinary team of experts in HIV/AIDS care at a central conferencing site with healthcare clinicians treating HIV/AIDS patients in rural, underserved, and key population areas. Individual cases are presented by the treating clinician and discussed by the group in order to provide consultative advice on the clinical management of HIV/AIDS patients. Relevant peer-reviewed articles, literature, and resources are circulated to participants to enhance their knowledge base and continuing medical education credits are provided.
