National Resource Center for Palliative Care in HIV/AIDS
This project, conducted in collaboration with the U.S. Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA), developed an educational resource and training program for health care providers on palliative care and HIV/AIDS topics. The resource increases the capacity of the national AIDS Education Training Centers (AETCs) to train clinicians in palliative care, and to increase the HIV/AIDS care skills of palliative care clinicians. All aspects of the curriculum were piloted throughout the Northwest five-state AETC region, tested and evaluated for effectiveness.
The project produced a curriculum with training modules, educational materials, and resources on HIV/AIDS palliative care topics for health professionals. The curriculum is available at: www.uwpallcare.org.
