     ABA Judicial Division

ABA Continuing MediCAl eduCAtion (CMe)
AppliCAtion – eduCAtionAl needs AssessMent

T   his needs assessment is based on a review of applicable
    legal pleadings and opinions and a request made by
a physician to the ABA AIDS Coordinating Committee
for analysis of specific practice situations. Some of the
questions arising in HIV-specific practice settings include:

   1.   When, and under what circumstances, is a physician obligated
        to report to a third party the HIV status of an individual not
        under the physician’s care?
   2.   What are the legal and ethical obligations of a physician who
        has knowledge that an HIV+ patient is non-complaint with
        his/her medications while engaging in unprotected sex with
        other parties?
   3.   What steps, if any, is a physician required to take upon learning
        that a patient’s partner refuses partner services?
   4.   What, if any, obligation does a private provider have to provide
        care and treatment to HIV+ patients?
   5.   What privacy/confidentiality concerns must physicians be aware
        of in using electronic medical records and/or data bases?
Research indicates that there are few cases directly on point with many
of the cases in which these, and other, questions arise. The paucity of
legal precedent on these issues suggests a need to assist physicians
in developing the analytical skills necessary to evaluate their legal and
ethical obligations in HIV-specific cases.

February 2010

W     elcome to this, our fifth, HIV law and practice conference, HIV/
      AIDS Law and Practice: Taking Stock, Looking Ahead. Over the
next two days we will focus on providing tools for lawyers committed
to serving those infected with and affected by HIV, as we have in the
past. Experts in the field will update us on new trends evidenced in
the case law, new initiatives afoot in Congress, and new directions of a
new administration in Washington.

This year, however, our focus has a twist: we have asked the
medical provider community to join us in a series of interactive
sessions designed to make us better practitioners across our various
disciplines. Working with the National Medical Association, we have
developed a program eligible for Continuing Medical Education
Credit (CME), as well as Continuing Legal Education Credit (CLE).
The State of Florida, Department of Health, Bureau of HIV/AIDS and
Hepatitis, has partnered with us thereby enabling us to reach public
health departments around the state as we sought input into the
program development.

Thank you for joining the ABA AIDS Coordinating Committee, our
Healthcare Advisory Committee, our 2010 planning committee, and
our strategic partners in this new endeavor. We hope you will be
pleased with the outcome.

    •    This activity has been planned and implemented in accordance with the
         Essential Areas and policies of the Accreditation Council for Continuing
         Medical Education through the joint sponsorship of the National Medical
         Association and the American Bar Association AIDS Coordinating
         Committee. The National Medical Association is accredited by the
         ACCME to provide continuing medical education for physicians.
    •    The National Medical Association designates this educational activity
         for a maximum of 18 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™. Physicians should
         only claim credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in
         the activity.
    •    The National Medical Association has been reviewed and approved as an
         Authorized Provider by the International Association for Continuing Medical
         Education and Training (IACET), 8405 Greensboro Drive, Suite 800, McLean,
         VA 22102-5120. The National Medical Association has awarded 1.8 of CEUs
         to participants who successfully complete this program.

Continuing Legal Education (CLE) Credit
Required special documentation has been forwarded to and credit requested
from MCLE states with general requirements for all lawyers. Lawyers seeking
credit in Pennsylvania must pay fees of $1.50 per credit hour directly to the PA
CLE Board. The ABA covers applicable fees in other states where the sponsor is
required to do so and in states where a late fee may become applicable. Please be
aware that each state has its own rules and regulations, including its own definition
of “CLE”; therefore, certain programs may not receive credit in some states. For
information on approved credit hours for your state, contact the ABA Service
Center (tel.: 1-800-285-2221).

2009-2010 ABA Aids
CoordinAting CoMMittee MeMBers
The American Bar Association established the Committee in 1987 to identify, analyze, and address
legal issues surrounding HIV/AIDS. To ensure a well-rounded, multi-disciplinary approach to the
issues, the Committee was and remains comprised of a chair appointed by the ABA president and
‘liaisons’ from more than twenty ABA entities and affiliated organizations. In 1988, the Committee
released AIDS: The Legal Issues, a comprehensive report and catalogue of policy recommendations,
which the ABA House of Delegates, the Association’s official policymaking body, adopted the
following year. Since then, the Committee has recommended numerous additional policies;
generated multiple publications and reports on specific issues; produced instructional videos for
establishing HIV-related non-profits and representing HIV-positive clients; and sponsored hearings,
meetings, educational programs, and national conferences on HIV/AIDS law and policy concerns.
In 2006, the Committee invited healthcare professionals to join an advisory committee to inform
the Committee’s work in addressing this public health epidemic. More information about the
Committee’s wide-ranging activities is available at
