A Clinical Guide to Supportive and Palliative Care for HIV/AIDS

Author: HRSA
Date Published: 2003

Through the work of visionaries in the fields of HIV/AIDS and palliative care, we conclude that excellent HIV care can be provided by integrating the principles and framework of palliative care into the delivery of care and services to people living with HIV/AIDS, throughout the continuum of illness. This integration of services holds the promise of patient and family-centered care that is proactive in addressing the multitude of issues with which patients are challenged. With this volume we seek to expand the definition of palliative care and to realize palliative care’s full potential to improve the quality of care and the quality of life of those living with HIV/AIDS.
