11 PCCP, Family Planning Data

12 Case Study Common Elements Identifying the range of care and prevention issues/challenges/needs for any given client is ongoing and complex Screening services and other prevention services may need to be offered to consumers many times over long periods of time before they accept services Consumers need support for disclosure decisions, critical for effective prevention Peer counselors can have a key role in bridging care and prevention for a client (or reconnecting client to care) Establishing rapport/building trust key

13 PCCP, Integration Challenges Change from traditional ID control focus to collaborative model of care Staff-additional education & training on family planning/prevention issues Tensions in providing new services that address “sensitive” issues Added clinical responsibilities Increased administrative/reporting functions

14 Integration Readiness Assessment What services are most needed to address HIV prevention needs of your clients? What services are most needed to address STD prevention needs of your clients? What services are needed to integrate care and prevention? What services are likely to be accepted and used by clients? Is co-location of services feasible? Are staff ready for co-management and coordination challenges? Which staff are affected? Can you provide cross-training of staff? Are prevention services offered continuously to clients (not just at intake or annual visits)? Do providers assist HIV positive clients with disclosure decisions? Is there a role for peer counselors for “hard to reach” clients?

15 Essential Steps for Integration What are you trying to achieve? Plan your outcomes Know the prevention and care needs of your client populations Integration Readiness Assessment Implement core services 1 st, add additional services incrementally Use CQI process to continually monitor, assess, and modify integration efforts

16 Team Assessment Process Process for assessing integration ideas Identify potential services to integrate Rating of potential services Why is this item important to our clients? our outcomes? What can it tell us about quality of care? Process helps consolidate, eliminate, or revise items, or identify root causes

17 Conclusions Prevention Interventions for PLWH must include support for disclosure decisions Need clear protocols for Partner Notification (PCRS) and consent for PCRS Providers considering integrating prevention services for PLWH need to have ability to provide range of support services (ex: domestic violence screening & referral) Prevention for PLWH is not a one-time service, need for ongoing services, and continual assessment and support HIV Rapid testing offers considerable promise for getting HIV+ into care as soon as possible, but provider trust and need for disclosure support and connection to peers only heightened
