Online Course On PrEP From Johns Hopkins University Starts On Coursera On May, 8th
This monday, May 8th, Johns Hopkins University starts its 'PrEPares' MOOC (online course) on the Coursera platform. The course provides you with essential information, concepts and practical advice regarding PrEP from leaders in the field.
A first of its kind learning opportunity, both providers and patients learn from the same experts through content that meets the needs of both audiences, while facilitating the opportunity for a shared community space.
Lessons for healthcare workers provide background on foundational and cutting-edge research and PrEP guidelines, how to initiate a PrEP program, clinical management and providing culturally sensitive sexual health and primary care to diverse communities.
Lessons for PrEP enthusiasts, PrEP users or the PrEP curious provide information regarding who can benefit from PrEP, how to access services, what to expect and how to stick with your PrEP program long-term.
This course is for individuals who are interested in gaining a basic understanding about pre-exposure prophylaxis for HIV prevention (PrEP). The Patient lessons are intended for persons considering PrEP for themselves, those already on PrEP as well as their friends, allies, and advocates. Healthcare providers interested in patient—level PrEP education should also consider this track. Content is presented to reach a broad audience, and prior medical knowledge is not necessary. The Provider lessons are intended for any healthcare worker, from peer navigators, social workers, and case managers to primary care providers and other prescribers interested in real-world implementation in the clinical setting. Persons who do not work in healthcare but are committed to acquiring an in-depth knowledge about PrEP should consider this track as well. A basic understanding of healthcare systems and health-related terms is desirable but not necessary.
