HIV.gov: Pharmacists, Medical Providers Support Patient-Centered Care
A project that links pharmacists and medical care providers to, in turn, provide patient-centered care to, in turn, improve retention in HIV care is featured in Pharmacists Can Play Key Role in Ending the HIV Epidemic, a June 10 HIV.gov blog. What prompts us to highlight this intervention is its upcoming addition to CDC's "best practices" collection, known by the weighty title Compendium of Evidence-Based Interventions and Best Practices for HIV Prevention, and--drum roll--parallel work underway to expand the collection of similar best practices as developed under HRSA's Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program (RWHAP).
TargetHIV already compiles a number of evidence-informed and similarly named interventions, like IHIP: Integrating HIV Innovative Practices, Dissemination of Evidence-Informed Interventions, and E2i: Using Evidence-Informed Interventions to Improve Health Outcomes among People Living with HIV. Stay tuned in the upcoming year as more best practices are unveiled and the growing collection is reordered and reorganized on TargetHIV.
