Addressing cancer treatment disparities for persons with HIV
This study is to investigate disparities by HIV status and modifiable risk factors for delays in cancer treatment initiation, treatment completion, and short- and long-term adverse events for persons with HIV (PWH) who were members of the Veteran’s Administration or Kaiser Permanente, the two largest healthcare systems in the United States. Study findings will provide necessary data to inform HIV-specific cancer treatment guidelines and improve cancer care delivery and outcomes for PWH.
Developing an HIV Specific-Specific Prevention Index Using Electronic Medical Record (HIV PI)
The goals of this study are to assess in HIV-infected patients, the degree of association between successful general clinical care by HIV disease-treating providers (reflected in overall adherence to recommended general prevention and screening guidelines) and higher-quality HIV-specific care and related clinical outcome.
