    HIV, Aging and Rehabilitation Focus at CAHR 2017

    CIHRRC was pleased to collaborate with the Canadian Association for HIV Research (CAHR) and Realize (formerly the Canadian Working Group on HIV and Rehabilitation) on two HIV and rehabilitation endeavours at the 26th Annual Canadian Conference on HIV/AIDS Research in Montreal, Quebec, in April 2017. 

    • Self-Management Interventions in HIV Rehabilitation – Addressing Research Priorities in HIV, Aging and Rehabilitation (Ancillary Meeting - Thursday April 6, 2017).

    CIHRRC in collaboration with CAHR, Realize and the Living with HIV (LHIV) Team hosted a one day participatory working meeting with the aim to translate knowledge and advance an intervention-based research agenda focused on self-management (SM) in the context of HIV, aging and rehabilitation. The meeting was attended by 32 clinicians, researchers, community members, people living with HIV, and trainees from Canada, Ireland and the United States with expertise in HIV, aging, rehabilitation and chronic disease self-management research. Speakers included Claire Liddy (University of Ottawa), Cliona Ni Cheallaigh (Mercer’s Institute for Successful Aging, Trinity College Dublin) and Richard Harding (King’s College London), who spoke about:


    • Advancing HIV, Aging and Rehabilitation: Where Does Rehabilitation Fit in the HIV Care Cascade? (Plenary Session - Friday April 7th, 2017).
