Using Regional Groups and Peer Learning to Improve HIV Care

HIVQUAL Regional Group Map

The presentation explores how the Learning Collaborative model was used to develop and implement systems-level interventions across three states as part of the SPNS Linkages and Access to Care for Populations at High Risk of HIV Infection initiative. The components of the Learning Collaborative will be discussed, along with strategies for engaging participants, testing out new interventions, and lessons learned.

Participants will examine select interventions and explore how they were used to generate new ideas and avenues for collaboration, thereby extending the reach and impact of the original scope. Data showing the impact of the interventions are presented along with challenges faced and lessons learned. Implementation manuals and protocols for each intervention will be shared so that others can apply the learning to their setting.

Learning Objectives:

  • Identify the major components of the Learning Collaborative model
  • Describe a range of successful strategies to link and retain clients in care
  • Discuss challenges faced, lessons learned and the impact of the respective interventions
