[Scientific session research presentation] Risks for acquiring HIV, hepatitis, and STDs overlap with risks of incarceration. Increasing importance of corrections populations in the changing HIV epidemic focuses attention on best practices and the special educational needs of caregivers. The purpose of this presentation is to review challenges to providing HIV care in corrections, discuss barriers and strategies to training providers, review a needs assessment of the AETC network, and present a national website and DVD on corrections educational resources. Training of providers about best practice and transitional issues can impact inmate populations with HIV rates three times the general population. The purpose of this presentation is to review challenges to providing HIV care in corrections, discuss barriers and strategies to training providers, review a needs assessment of the AETC network, and present a national website and DVD on corrections educational resources. This presentation will increase awareness among nursing leadership about needs and care of underserved populations with or at risk for HIV and other infectious diseases and funded projects that developed resources to meet these needs.
