Southern Central AIDS Education Telehealth Training Center

Grants and Contracts Details


Proposed Project: SCAETTC is uniquely positioned to respond to this RFP as it builds on longstanding successful delivery of clinical, educational and research activities by the University of Kentucky (UK), to patients and providers in medically underserved Kentucky. SCAETTC will leverage the existing infrastructure of the Kentucky Local Performance Site of the Southeast AIDS Training and Education Center (KY LPS), a HRSA funded AIDS Education Training Center that delivers HIV medical education to providers. SCAETTC will collaborate with University of Kentucky Healthcare Continuing Education Central (UKHCCEC), an accredited full service continuing education program for clinicians which uses sophisticated web-based tools with worldwide reach. In addition SCAETTC will collaborate with Kentucky Telehealth Network (KTHN), a statewide interactive videoconference network that brings specialized healthcare resources from UK to community healthcare facilities across Kentucky. The SCAETTC will expand access to, and improve health and health outcomes for hard-to-reach, HIV-positive persons residing in medically underserved areas (MUA). The efforts of SCAETTC will enhance the capacity of community-based clinicians engaged in HIV health care delivery systems in the state of KY and throughout the US through the utilization of telehealth technology for clinical consultation, education and training, and development of an informed support system for trainees built on the infrastructures of the previously established KTHN, UKHCCEC, and KY LPS.
