Quality HIV care is often complicated by substance use, mental health issues, and other co-morbidities among people living with HIV/AIDS (PLWH). Interdisciplinary, team-based approaches can be successful in providing coordinated, comprehensive HIV care and services that address the range of needs of PLWH. Such approaches can be challenging given pressures to minimize healthcare costs and increase efficiency, regulatory changes related to the Affordable Care Act, and the expanded role of community health centers in providing HIV care. HRSA/HAB contracted with John Snow, Inc. to identify effective models of interdisciplinary care and understand specific components and factors critical to the success of such programs. This workshop will review the study findings including the implications for Ryan White Program grantees in the current health care environment. Several grantees that participated in the study will also share key factors in the success of their interdisciplinary care programs.

Learning Objectives:

  • Based on findings from the study and presentations from the participating clinics, participants will: Be able to identify factors which make interdisciplinary HIV care programs most effective, including how success is defined, optimal service configurations, and key elements of success;
  • Understand how interdisciplinary HIV care models have been implemented in a range of care settings, including common elements and challenges to their implementation, and adaptations that grantees have made to respond to local context and populations served;
  • And, be able to understand the potential implications of health care reform and other national trends on adopting or strengthening interdisciplinary HIV care models as Ryan White Program grantees.
