NAT are currently gathering evidence on the role of social care in the long-term support of people living with HIV and the views of HIV clinics are a central part of this.
In order to capture your views and those of your colleagues we have developed a short survey (9 questions) and we would greatly appreciate your participation.
The survey aims to:
- Find out what impact HIV clinics feel that social care support has on their patients’ ability to manage their HIV and health more broadly.
- Gather evidence as to the value of HIV social care from a medical and public health perspective that can be used to argue the case for funding for HIV social care at a local level.
For the purposes of the survey, social care refers to services which provide support for people in their daily lives so as to enable them to live independently and play a full part in society. In terms of HIV specific social care, this may refer to services such as counselling, peer support, support for carers, personal care and respite care. But of course we are interested in any service provided by local authorities to people with HIV as social care.
- The survey can be accessed at https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/Q6JXJ5D and will be open until Tuesday 5 April 2011.
If you have any problems accessing the survey or have any further questions or comments on this issue please do not hesitate to get in touch at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
