(excerpt) HIV care has long had an identity crisis — Does it belong in the realm of primary care, specialty care, or both? Should patients with HIV receive their care in multiple settings? HIV care can be complex, particularly in patients who are long-term survivors and have been treated with multiple generations of antiretroviral medications or have multiple comorbidities.
Once viral suppression is achieved, the focus of primary care for people with HIV is in many ways the same as for those who don't have HIV, which increasingly includes the problems associated with aging. The recently updated guideline "Comprehensive Primary Care for Adults With HIV" from the New York State Department of Health AIDS Institute (NYSDOH AI) addresses key issues in healthcare for adults with HIV. . .
Dr. Maria T. Brown, of Syracuse University’s School of Social Work, wants to learn more about the healthcare experiences of long-term survivors of HIV/AIDS and/or people age 50 or older who are living with HIV/AIDS in New York State.
The researchers want to hear from consumers and care providers across the state about barriers they have faced and recommendations they would make to improve healthcare and supportive services. Dr. Brown has consulted with the co-chairs of the HIV+ Aging and Long-Term Survivors Subcommittee on the focus and content of this survey, and will be sharing her results with them. Results of this survey will be made publicly available by the end of 2021.
This online survey will take approximately 15-20 minutes of your time. Participation is optional. The survey is anonymous and your answers will not be linked to your name in any way. Please be sure to read all of the information at the beginning of the survey to understand your rights as a participant.
