Target Audience: Massage Therapists.

Course Description:
HIV-education is mandatory in some states because of the risk of discrimination against HIV-positive clients, NOT because there is a risk for the practitioner. There is a natural inclination to shy away from treating patients with communicable diseases, particularly HIV/AIDS. It is important to not panic if you find out that a new client is HIV-positive and this course will teach you why you shouldn't.

This course discusses the disease and it's methods of transmission and how to treat HIV-positive patients without the worry of contracting the disease.

Course Goals:
This course is intended to instruct the professional through a self-paced study on treating clients with HIV/AIDS

Course Objectives:
At the end of this course the professional will be able to:
• Define HIV and AIDS
• Recognize how HIV is transmitted
• Identify possible early symptoms of HIV infections
• Prevent HIV infections
• Describe how to work with clients who are HIV positive or who have AIDS

Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.
