Dr. Jason Farley is both a Johns Hopkins University School of Nursing faculty member and a nurse practitioner in the Division of Infectious Diseases within the Johns Hopkins AIDS Service. He also holds an adjunct faculty appointment at Stellenbosch University in Cape Town, South Africa. His current research assesses the epidemiologic interactions of patients with HIV and drug resistance infections in both domestic and international settings. His projects include an evaluation of treatment outcomes in patients with multi-drug resistant tuberculosis (MDR-TB) with a high HIV/AIDS prevalence in South Africa in collaboration with the Medical Research Council of South Africa. His team of researchers recently completed a country-wide assessment of knowledge, attitudes, and practices related to infection control in hospitals in South Africa. The project successfully enrolled all 24 of the South African hospitals treating MDR-TB, and nearly 500 healthcare workers at these sites. In the U.S, he works to assess multidrug resistant Staphylococcus aureas (MRSA) colonization and infection among patients with HIV/AIDS in Maryland. He also is serving as the principal investigator on a grant exploring adherence to CVD guidelines in providers of HIV care within the Johns Hopkins AIDS Service and is a member of the editorial board of the American Journal of Infection Control.
