A successful interview allows for the collection of critical information about a person diagnosed with STI/HIV, while providing support, referrals, and answers to questions the person may have. The goals of the case interview are to assess the person’s medical condition, ensure linkage to care and treatment, gather information for continued monitoring and support, and obtain the names and locating information of people who may have been exposed to facilitate testing and treatment as appropriate.  This learning collaborative will focus on elicitation of sexual and social network information.  

Participants will learn what social-sexual networks are, discuss disease transmission within a network, and explore a framework for contact elicitation. In roleplays, participants will have an opportunity to practice the contact elicitation portion of the interview, and identify a social-sexual network.

Training participants could benefit from training in motivational interviewing, and sexual orientation and gender identity, prior to attending this training. Training participants new to the disease intervention role could benefit from attending the STI/HIV Interview Series Learning Collaboratives--Overview of STI/HIV Interviewing, and Social and Medical History Taking, prior to this training.


  • Define social-sexual network
  • Discuss how social-sexual networks affect HIV/STI transmission
  • Identify three key components of successful social-sexual network identification
  • Conduct a contact and partner elicitation session
