HIV & AIDS: An Introduction

The human immunodeficiency virus, commonly referred to as HIV, is the virus that can lead to acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) in people. HIV is considered a pandemic because the infection has spread through human populations across a large region; in this case the entire planet. As of 2011, about 34 million people worldwide have HIV. Since health and human service professionals can, and do, routinely interact with patients who have communicable diseases like AIDS, it is important that they understand these diseases and how they are transmitted.This course discusses the history of HIV and AIDS, along with symptoms, the impact of HIV and AIDS on particular populations, and how HIV is linked to viral hepatitis.

Client-Patient Rights

In this day and age with all the things that can happen to a person and all of their information, client and patient rights are important to know and understand. Client-patient rights have changed from when they first became a part of medical and research programs to what we know now. While rights vary from state to state and county to county, the rights of patients and clients are a very important part of healthcare. This course will discuss client-patient rights terminology as well as how it changes based on the setting.
