  • Overview

    Sexual histories are a vital part of ensuring a patient’s well-being. Nonetheless, many providers are uncomfortable taking a sexual history for an individual who may be at increased risk for acquiring HIV. The ability to offer a preventative medication for HIV acquisition is a cornerstone for informed consent for sexual health. Join Dr. Richard Elion as he takes us through a patient-clinician dialogue demonstrating how to take a sexual history that is complete, respectful, and nonjudgmental.
