    What's New at CIHRRC

    CUHRRC at EACS 2015

    CUHRRC is pleased to release 'A Rapporteur Summary of the HIV and Rehabilitation Content presented at the 15th European AIDS Conference hosted by the European AIDS Clinical Society (EACS).' The 15th European AIDS Conference occurred in Barcelona from October 21st-24th, 2015. CUHRRC developed this rapporteur summary to summarize HIV and rehabilitation content presented at EACS 2015 to increase awareness of research in the field. The Rapporteur Summary is organized according to six research priorities in the Framework of Research Priorities in HIV, Disability and Rehabilitation: 1) episodic health and disability; 2) aging with HIV across the lifespan; 3) concurrent health conditions; 4) access to rehabilitation and models of rehabilitation service provision; 5) effectiveness of rehabilitation interventions; and 6) enhancing outcome measurement in HIV and rehabilitation research. The priorities are in no particular order of importance. Specific abstracts are referenced throughout, with a reference list at the end of the summary.
