A New Community of Practice – HIV in Motion: on Movement, Physical Activity and Exercise for Persons Living with HIV!
Posted on 2020-10-01
We are excited to announce the vibrant Community of Practice (CoP) called HIV in Motion! It is open to persons living with HIV, academics, students, researchers, and practitioners, both clinical and organizations interested in physical activity and exercise. The HIV in Motion CoP will be hosted online quarterly throughout the year.
What is a Community of Practice (CoP)?
A Community of Practice is an informal group of people who share a concern or a passion for something they do and learn how to do it better as they interact regularly. The HIV in Motion Community of Practice (CoP) provides a dynamic space for all stakeholders to learn, exchange ideas, promote dissemination in academic and community ways, promote uptake and evaluation of learning and results about movement, physical activity and exercise for persons living with HIV among, and with, people living with HIV.
Online Modules Sessions
The HIV in Motion CoP will be hosting online module sessions with the CoP network. The online modules will be a knowledge translation vehicle to provide updates on the HIV in motion CIHR-funded research study, and to translate knowledge on different topics and areas of interest and practice of social and physical activity among people living with HIV.
Who can Join?
Anyone! The online module session are open to anyone interested in participating and will be promoted by the partner sites. The CoP is broad – you do not need to be a participant in the research study to be a part of the CoP. If you are a participant in the research study you can join the CoP, but it is not required.
