Study Protocol for a Scoping Review on Non-pharmacologic Interventions for Chronic Pain in Individuals with HIV
Posted on 2020-09-10
CIHRRC members Dave Kietrys, Mary Lou Galantino, Sarah Pullen and Kelly O’Brien have registered their study protocol with Open Science Framework for a “Scoping Review on Non-pharmacologic Interventions for Chronic Pain in Individuals with HIV”, now available to the public here.
The objective of this scoping review is to: “map the literature of non-pharmaceutical interventions for the management of chronic pain in persons living with HIV (PLWH) in order to inform current clinical practice, identify gaps in knowledge, and prioritize clinical questions to inform the evolution of a research agenda for non-pharmaceutical management of chronic pain in PLWH.”
The team has been working hard, and are over halfway through the initial blinding screening. CIHRRC is looking forward to the next steps! Stay tuned!

We are pleased to announce the publication of a new manuscript in AIDSImpact Special Issue: Recommendations from Rehabilitation in Chronic Disease to Advance Healthy Ageing with HIV in the AIDS Care .
On November 9, 2018, a one-day symposium was held titled “Broadening the Lens: What can we learn from other complex conditions for successful ageing with HIV?”. A total of 77 stakeholders with expertise in the field of rehabilitation and HIV, cancer, renal disease, cardiovascular disease, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease to discuss how rehabilitation issues in complex chronic disease translate to people ageing with HIV, and prioritised recommendations for future practice and research.
An outline of the symposium aim, disability priorities across HIV and other chronic conditions, recommendations for research to advance healthy ageing with HIV, and strategies moving forward were outlined and published in AIDS Impact Special Issue in AIDS Care in February 2020.
