  • Description:
    HIV Nurse Navigation Program is a structural intervention designed to improve engagement in care and medication adherence for veterans with HIV who attend a Veterans Affairs (VA) Infectious Disease primary care clinic. A registered nurse is dedicated as a navigator in the clinic and provides an individualized approach that includes care management, intensive outreach, and collaboration with existing support systems. In the event of missed clinic visits, the nurse navigator actively reaches out to patients by calling both the veteran and any available emergency contact until the patient is reached. The nurse navigator helps with pillbox renewals, reminder calls (i.e., upcoming appointments and medication renewal), text reminders, same day walk-in clinics, and collaborates with family members, clinic staff, and specialty consultants. The nurse navigator also maintains a password protected database of patient-specific information (e.g., medication renewal dates, upcoming appointments, most recent contacts) to track progress, and disseminates any pertinent information (e.g., patient moved out of state) to the rest of the treatment team.
