Case Management Training Institute

The Case Management Training Institute (CMTI), generously funded by the CT Department of Housing, was created to provide a comprehensive training program for individuals with case management responsibilities in AIDS services, AIDS housing, domestic violence, homeless shelters, and transitional living programs, regardless of how the positions are funded (i.e. DPH, HOPWA, DOH, and DMHAS).

HIV and Cardiovascular Disease - CANCELLED

Presented by Dr. Brian Palmer

Having HIV places people at a higher risk for heart disease, even younger people. The increased risk is thought to be due to a number of things—long-term exposure to HIV, HIV-related inflammation, some HIV medicines, as well as other factors. There are a number of ways your clients can work with their healthcare providers to reduce their risk of heart disease and keep their hearts healthy with HIV. During this training we’ll discuss CVD epidemiology and risk in HIV-positive patients (Coronary heart disease, myocardial infarction, stroke, sudden cardiac death, atrial fibrillation), HIV-associated biomarkers of CVD risk, ART and CVD risk, CVD-related events in HIV-positive patients, and management of CVD risk in HIV-positive patients. Participants will also have a chance to practice how they might counsel a patient using this information.
