Looking for new strategies to help clients with HIV who also face complex challenges like homelessness, substance abuse, and mental health disorders? Join us for an interactive webinar to learn how two successful programs (one urban, one rural) engaged and retained the most severely impacted and hardest to serve clients in HIV primary care, behavioral health, and housing. Presenters will share their experiences and provide practical knowledge gained from their work as  demonstration sites for HRSA/HAB Special Projects of National Significance (SPNS) Building a Medical Home for Multiply Diagnosed HIV-positive Homeless Populations.

Webinar Topics

Learn how to mobilize an effective team that:

  • Engages multiple community partners to build a robust network of services.
  • Integrates trauma informed care and motivational interviewing into client interactions.
  • Champions palliative care and advanced care planning.
  • Develops system wide coordination for referrals and linkages that are timely and appropriate.
