Although the role of rehabilitation in the care of individuals with HIV continues to grow, no best practice guidelines currently exist. Realize is currently working with other partners on:
- developing evidence-informed recommendations and best practice guidelines for rehabilitation in the context of HIV – see Evidence Informed Recommendations for Rehabilitation with Older Adults Living with HIV: A Knowledge Synthesis (O’Brien et al., 2014)
- identify integrated models of rehabilitation at the point of care – see Integrated Models of Rehabilitation Available at the Point of Care: Interviews with Select Programs
- identify and promote key research priorities in the area of rehabilitation policy and clinical practice – see Scoping the Field: Identifying Key Research Priorities in HIV and Rehabilitation: Poster
These sets of recommendations were developed based on literature reviews, knowledge syntheses, and consultation with key informants, including: people living with HIV, researchers, educators, clinicians and policy makers.
