AIDS Education

The Kansas AIDS Education and Training Center (KAETC) is a close affiliate and integral part of the HIV network of services offered at the KU School of Medicine-Wichita. Along with AETCs in New Mexico, Nebraska, Utah, Colorado, the Dakotas, and Wyoming, the KAETC is part of the Mountain Plains AIDS Education and Training Center. Funded by a grant from the Human Resource and Service Administration (HRSA), the AETCs are charged with educating health care professionals about HIV infection, including prevention, diagnosis, treatment, and psychosocial issues.

Dr. Donna Sweet is the director and principal investigator for the Kansas AETC. The educational programs are designed for physicians, physician assistants, nurses, advanced registered nurse practitioners, dentists, dental hygienists, and pharmacists. The primary topics for programs are:

  • infection control in health care settings
  • post-exposure prophylaxis (PEP)
  • issues around testing, counseling
  • confidentiality
  • risk assessment
  • current treatment protocols
  • health promotion
  • disease prevention strategies
  • working with diverse cultures and ethnic populations
