Peer Health Navigation in HIV Services

Event Date: 
16 February 2018, 12:00 EST

Health navigation programs for people living with HIV improve health and wellness outcomes and a number of Canadian peer health navigation programs have been established to do just that. Peer health navigation is a person-centred approach to guide, connect, refer, educate and accompany people living with HIV through systems of care.

The goals of health navigation are to support people living with HIV in their self-determined goals, to build the capacity of clients to self-manage their HIV care, to navigate systems themselves and, ultimately, improve their health and overall wellness.

This webinar will unpack diverse peer health navigation models and introduce participants to newly available Practice Guidelines in Peer Health Navigation for People Living with HIV. Participants will have an opportunity to engage in dialogue with the speakers.
