3 hrs HIV and AIDS Questions and Answers

HIV and AIDS

3 hours

Dr. Gallant has written his book in a question/answer format. He addresses 100 of the most frequently asked questions about HIV and AIDS in a straight-forward, dignified way. He begins with discussions about what the diseases are and how to contract them. He then moves on to tests to confirm diagnoses, stating the names of tests that are most accurate in confirming a correct diagnosis. He explains coping skills, answers questions about daily living activities, and many of the medicines that have been extremely successful in helping HIV positive patients live full, healthy lives.

There is tremendous hope for people who have received positive diagnoses. Instead of the impending death threat from contraction of HIV and/or AIDS, the new school of thought is that there are many combinations of therapies that allow for a regular lifestyle. There are many support systems available for both patients and families.

This is a must-have book if you work with people at all. It will quiet some of the fearful thoughts that many bodyworkers have, since we work so intimately with clients. It will answer most questions that are asked about contracting, living with, and combatting the disease. The greatest takeaway from this book and course is that HIV and AIDS are much easier to treat than diabetes or arthritis!

Goal:

Upon completion of this course, the student will be able to identify ways to contract HIV, tests that confirm diagnoses, medications that are used to treat these diseases, and support systems that are available for people who are HIV/AIDS-positive.

Objectives:

Students will be able to master the following objectives with a minimum of 70% accuracy:

  • Discuss the impact of getting the diagnosis of HIV infection
  • Name the most important tests needed once a diagnosis has been made:
    • CD4 Count, also known as T-cell count
    • Viral load – plasma HIV RNA
    • Resistance test
      • This tests what drugs the body is resistant to
  • State the groups of people that testing is especially recommended for
  • Explain what the Centers for Disease Control did in 1993, expanding the definitions of AIDS to include people with CD4 counts of less than 200
  • Characterize the HIV tests used to assess and confirm the presence of HIV
  • Clarify how antiretroviral (ART) works
  • Define “Reverse Transcription”
  • Expound on the characteristics and symptoms that indicate that the current therapy has stopped working
  • Compare and contrast the terms dysphasia (difficulty swallowing) and opadynophasia (painful swallowing)
  • Define “co-infection”
  • Explain what the HBsAb blood test is and what it is used for
  • Discuss “Koch’s postulates”, the 4 criteria needed to prove that a microbe or organism is the cause of a disease

Learning Outcomes:

The learning outcomes for this course will be measured by the mastery of the objectives set forth in the Learning Objectives section. Students must master the objectives, which are measured by the written assessment. Students must achieve a test score of 70% or higher to achieve mastery of these objectives.
