Educational Programs for Clinicians
Through CORE and MAI funding, MATEC provides clinical training and support to health care professionals (physicians, nurses, mid-level providers, pharmacists, social workers, etc.) around the state.
HIV Practice Transformation Project (HPTP)
MATEC has partnered with 14 clinics across the region through the HIV Practice Transformation Project to expand, improve, and increase the efficiency, comprehensiveness and quality of HIV care to improve patient outcomes along the HIV care continuum by integrating principles of the patient-centered medical home model and integrated HIV care and behavioral health services. MATEC’s approach to practice transformation (PT) is concerned with fundamental systems change for clinics and agencies, understanding that the highest quality and most effective care for people living with HIV involves all parts of their care setting. The MATEC Cincinnati clinic is the McMicken Integrated Health in OTR.
Clinicians Scholars Program
The Clinician Scholars Program is designed for front-line clinicians who are interested in expanding their capacity to provide HIV/AIDS care, aiming to increase the number of clinicians that provide care to underserved or disproportionately affected populations. Scholars receive twelve months of structured, yet participant-centered, in-depth training on HIV/AIDS diagnosis, treatment, medical management and prevention of HIV infection.
HIV Interprofessional Education Program (HIPEP)
The HIV Interprofessional Education Program (HIPEP), is a regional HIV Interprofessional Education (IPE) collaborative that includes four University-based IPE academic programs. MATEC develops, implements, and evaluates interprofessional team-based training programs for health professions students to prepare a workforce which is ready and able to optimize care and outcomes for persons with HIV/AIDS.
Midwest Integration of the National HIV Curriculum (MINHC)
The Midwest Integration of the National HIV Curriculum (MINHC) is funded by the Health Resources and Services Administration to integrate the National HIV Curriculum (NHC) e-learning platform into accredited health professions programs (HPPs) of medicine, nursing, and pharmacy. Developed by the University of Washington, the NHC is an e-learning platform for novice-to-expert health professionals, students, and faculty.
Ohio Department of Health
