Tools of Engagement: Nursing and Patient Activation
Recognizing that only 1 in 4 HIV+ individuals is on treatment with full viral suppression, President Obama established the HIV Care Continuum Initiative in July 2013. It sets the goal to increase the number of individuals that are engaged in care and achieving the full benefits of HIV treatment, from '1 in 4' to '4 in 4.'
To meet the call, we must employ innovative ways to support engagement and retention in care. Patient activation has fostered engagement in care for people with all kinds of chronic illnesses and holds promise for people living with HIV.
Join us for a dinner program exploring nursing's role in supporting engagement in care. Validated in over 100 peer-reviewed research studies, the Patient Activation Measure® assesses an individual's knowledge, skills and confidence. Learn how this assessment tool can help nurses tailor interventions to support engagement along the care continuum.
Together we can stop the virus.
