Prep implementation Trainings
Dr. Golub works with Health Departments, Technical Assistances and Capacity Building Organizations, and Community-Based Clinics and other Health Care Providers across the country to support PrEP implementation and the integration of PrEP programs into high-quality care. Each of the resources and trainings below have emerged out of our implementation science research and are informed by both quantitative and qualitative data, as well as our experience supporting and learning from our community-based collaborators.
The PrEP Program Implementation Workshop is designed to assist clinical care settings in developing protocols for implementation of high-quality, successful PrEP programs. This workshop is attended by a two-person team from each setting (e.g., the Medical Director and Clinic Administrator) and participants are provided with draft protocols, checklists, education materials, and tracking systems necessary to successfully implement a PrEP program in their setting.
Best Practices Training
The Best Practices in PrEP/PEP Education and Counseling Training is designed to train front-line staff (e.g., patient navigators, HIV test counselors, other prevention counselors) to provide education and support to their clients. The training was developed by Dr. Golub in collaboration with the NYC Department of Health and Mental Hygiene (DOHMH) Bureau of HIV, and is provided by the DOHMH Capacity Building Assistance (CBA) Program.
SPARK was an NIH-funded PrEP demonstration project (R01AA 022067; Golub, PI) conducted in collaboration with Callen Lorde Community Health Center. We developed two brief counseling interventions that significantly improved adherence among PrEP patients (Golub et al., 2017). You can download the intervention manuals and other resource materials, and learn more about webinars and other training opportunities for your staff.
