Summary

As medication and technology has improved, HIV is no longer a terminal illness. It is now considered a long-term condition and nursing is well placed to provide both care and management for people with HIV. This book is the definitive text for nurses working with this patient group at an advanced level, whether in an acute hospital setting, in an HIV or sexual health community setting or alongside other patients with long-term conditions in primary care. Accessible and evidence-based, each chapter in this text is followed by a case study exploring and illustrating the relevant issues as they apply to practice. It is divided into six sections and covers: Advanced nursing in HIV Sexual health in HIV populations Routine care and management Dealing with more complex situations Social, cultural and ethical considerations. Referring throughout to RCN and NONPF competencies for advanced nurses, Advanced Clinical Practice in HIV Care is ideal for nurses pushing the traditional boundaries of who can provide care to patients.
