This training manual helps health care providers adapt SPNS models. It addresses how to engage hard-to-reach people with HIV into care, within their current operations. The manual includes an overview of underserved populations most impacted by HIV and covers:
- The barriers they face in accessing HIV prevention
- Treatment and Care
Also included is a list of resources and other information to further assist with the replication process.
The curriculum provides clinicians the information they need to educate staff and other stakeholders on how to replicate models of care developed to engage and retain hard-to-reach populations into HIV medical care. It also can serve as a quality improvement initiative. The curriculum is geared to helping agencies build their capacity to reach and serve people with HIV, from marginalized and underserved populations that are not engaged in care, are unstable in or sporadically in care, and/or have fallen out of care.
This webinar introduces providers to several successful strategies for reaching the most vulnerable populations.
Speakers provide insights relevant to a wide range of audiences from clinicians to social workers, including the use of data systems to improve in-reach.
