A Person-centred Model of HIV Nursing Care

The National HIV Nurses Association has developed the first model of nursing care specifically designed for registered nurses working in an HIV setting or whose role involves caring for people living with HIV.

This was a collaborative effort involving PLHIV, clinical nurse specialists and academics from across the UK. While we recognise the invaluable contribution of other healthcare workers, it is not within the scope of this document to address the care delivered by non-registered nurses.

Each section of the model is linked to HIV Nursing competencies at different levels, training and quality.

We have also provided links to HIV-specific guidance and policies as well as broader NHS priorities to assist in demonstrating evidence for nursing roles at a local level.

We believe that this model will not only support nurses caring for people with HIV but also help to reduce any variation in care, improve the standard of care and provide a professional framework for NMC revalidation.

In the consultation, we invited comments on the model of care and the writing group are currently reviewing the feedback.
