Formative Research to Develop the Routine HIV Testing for Emergency Medicine Physicians, Prevention Is Care (PIC), and Partner Services Social Marketing Campaigns—Extension—(0920-0775, exp. 4/30/2011), National Center for HIV/AIDS, Viral Hepatitis, STD, and TB Prevention (NCHHSTP), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
Background and Brief Description
This project involves formative research to inform the development of three CDC-sponsored social marketing campaigns: Social Marketing Campaign to Make HIV Testing a Routine Part of Medical Care for Emergency Medicine Physicians (Routine HIV Testing), Prevention Is Care (PIC), and Partner Services (Partner Services). The goal of the Routine HIV Testing Campaign is to increase HIV testing rates among individuals who receive care through the emergency department and the objective of the campaign is to make HIV testing a routine part of care provided by emergency medicine physicians. PIC entails encouraging primary care physicians (PCP) and Infectious Disease Specialists who deliver care to patients living with HIV to screen their HIV patients for HIV transmission behaviors and deliver brief messages on the importance of protecting themselves and others by reducing their risky behaviors. The long-term objective of the campaign is to establish PIC as the standard of care for persons living with HIV. The goal of the Partner Services component of the PIC social marketing campaign is to make HIV partner services a routine part of medical care. Partner services will greatly enhance the detection and early referral of individuals with HIV infection and will greatly reduce the number of new infections. The study entails conducting interviews to test creative materials with a sample of emergency medicine physicians for Routine HIV Testing and with PCP and Infectious Disease Specialists for PIC and Partner Services. Findings from this study will be used by CDC and its partners to inform current and future program activities.
For Routine HIV Testing, we expect a total of 36 physicians to be screened annually for eligibility. Of the 36 physicians who are screened annually, we expect that 24 will participate in an interview annually.
For PIC, we expect a total of 81 physicians to be screened annually for eligibility. Of the 81 physicians who are screened, we expect that 54 will participate in an interview annually.
For Partner Services, we expect a total of 87 physicians to be screened annually for eligibility. Of the 87 physicians who are screened, we expect that 58 will participate in an interview annually.
There are no costs to the respondents other than their time.
