Supporting HIV care through education and innovation

Clinicians

Providing quality care to people living with HIV/AIDS is the mission of the Ryan White program. Most Ryan White clinics use a multidisciplinary team approach where clinicians (e.g., physicians, nurses, physicians assistants) work with other staff and consumers to ensure that patients receive care and support. The resources on this website, and the support provided by HRSA training and technical assistance, can help clinicians keep abreast of complex and evolving standards in order to provide high quality care to their patients.

Topics for clinicians

  • Medical Services - outpatient medical care, antiretroviral therapy, adherence, substance abuse, mental health, pediatrics, hepatitis, TB, testing, prevention, oral health, and other important topics in providing clinical care.
  • Oral Health Care - guidelines, standards, and program inspiration for dental and oral health professionals
  • Quality Management - HRSA's standards and tools and resources to measure and improve performance.
  • Cultural Competency, and Population-specific Resources - the insights and models listed in this area will help providers to tailor programs that are supportive of their patient populations.
  • Engagement in Care - keeping patients engaged extends their lives. Learn about proven, and exploratory, strategies to link patients to services and keep them in care.
  • Support Services - include housing, legal, transportation, and other essential "wrap-around" programs that enhance the delivery of medical care. Case management services, including medical case management, help bring it all together.
