    British HIV Association Conference – Special Session

    The Forum was preceded by an invited special session on HIV and rehabilitation at the British HIV Association (BHIVA) Conference on Friday October 10th, 2014 entitled: ‘A Tale of Rehabilitation in Two Countries: A Snapshot of HIV and Rehabilitation in Canada and the United Kingdom’. The objectives of this hour long session were: 1) to describe the role and evidence for rehabilitation in the context of HIV; 2) to highlight the strengths of rehabilitation research and practice in Canada and the United Kingdom; and 3) to highlight ways in which to recognize the need for rehabilitation, referral and access to rehabilitation for people living with HIV. This session was moderated by Esther McDonnell (RHIVA, Chelsea and Westminster Hospital) and speakers Patty Solomon (McMaster University), Kelly O’Brien (University of Toronto), Francisco Ibáñez-Carrasco (Ontario HIV Treatment Network), Darren Brown (Chelsea and Westminster Hospital NHS Trust) and Elizabeth Stevens (Birmingham Hearts of England NHS Trust) presented on HIV and Rehabilitation in Canada and the United Kingdom.
