Engaging Homeless, Multiply Diagnosed, HIV positive homeless persons into medical, psychiatric, and supportive services

Friday, June 23, 2017: 1:00 PM-2:30 PM
Franklin Square (Grand Hyatt Washington)
People who are homeless, HIV positive, and multiply diagnosed with mental health and substance use disorders often face an array of challenges and barriers when attempting to access services and achieve optimal medical and psychosocial outcomes. This presentation will explore, through the perspective of composite client and provider narratives utilizing audio/visual media, and through participant dialogue, how persons that are members of this population manage the challenges.  Interviews with providers across multiple disciplines will be presented to provide a complete picture of client and provider collaboration in promoting access and optimal outcomes.
