HIV in Family Practice

HIV in Family Practice provides education and resources for the implementation of routine HIV testing in family practice as well as helping family physicians understand their role in HIV management. We know practice change can be challenging, and with our partners Vancouver Coastal Health, Providence Health Care, Island Health, and Interior Health, our aim is to provide free, accredited education that explains the rationale for routine HIV testing, discusses how routine testing can easily be implemented in family practice, and supports the role of the family physician in managing ongoing HIV care for patients.
