    CUHRRC Member Richard Harding (UK) and Colleagues Published in The Lancet HIV

    Richard Harding and colleagues recently published an article on their intervention trial entitled ‘Nurse-led Palliative Care for HIV-Positive Patients Taking Antiretroviral Therapy in Kenya: A Randomised Controlled Trial.’
    Richard and his colleagues designed an intervention entitled the Treatment Outcomes in Palliative Care (TOPCare) trial. Authors found that a simple training programme in the principles and practice of palliative care that was delivered to existing HIV outpatient nurses significantly improved quality of life, psychosocial problems, and psychiatric morbidity. Results offer a promising model for health services around the world that will face an
    increasing patient load with such problems. The paper is accessible here: http://www.thelancet.com/journals/lanhiv/article/PIIS2352-3018(15)00111-3/fulltext
