We are all Partners in+care

You

The success of the in+care Campaign depends on all of us joining together through the in+care Campaign, including you as a Partner in+care.

In Care

When we stay in care we improve our health and quality of life. We get all the benefits that research, medicine, and healthcare can offer. When we stay in care we feel better, we do more, we live longer, and we help ourselves, our families, and our communities. We stay in care by seeing our doctor on a regular basis, year-after-year-after-year.

Studies suggest that patients retained in care are more likely to have better health outcomes, including improved CD4 count, suppressed viral load, fewer hospital admissions/emergency room visits, and higher life expectancies (references can by found on the Resources page in the Additional Resources folder).

All of Us

The in+care Campaign, much like the Ryan White Program itself, brings together people from all walks of life. We are all dedicated to improving health. That’s why the Campaign focuses on helping people living with HIV stay in care.

Just as your health is improved when you work as a partner with your doctor and HIV providers, our in+care Campaign will go further and achieve more when people living with HIV/AIDS join us as Partners in+care.

Involved in+care

You commit to doing a little more during the coming year to get a better at self-care, supporting others, and improving care for everyone.

Partners in Change

We will work together in the coming year to make changes so that you stay in care, get peers to come back into care, and partner with your HIV program to improve care. This will improve our health and create healthier communities.

Models to Assist in Adolescent Transitions to Adult HIV Care

Thursday, November 13, 2014

2pm ET

 

Not long after the beginning of the AIDS epidemic, our community of HIV providers learned that it is very difficult to transition adolescents engaged in pediatric care to an adult care setting. Over the years, many solutions to this problem have been developed and tested with variable success. In this webinar, we will explore two models to transition adolescents with HIV into adult care. Ashley Boylan of Grady Infectious Disease clinic in Atlanta, GA will discuss the clinician-led transition model they have had in place for many years. Kathryn Tenkku of Washington University of St Louis, MO will discuss the case manager led transition model they have in place at their clinic. The purpose of the webinar is to explore the commonalities of these two models and to engage in a discussion about the experiences we have had as HIV providers in other settings and of various backgrounds.

 

The meeting information follows. Please note NQC has moved to Webex and you should allow 5 extra minutes to login in case there are any IT or technical issues with your sign-in. We look forward to seeing you at this discussion!
