New guidelines on how social care services and care homes can best support people living with HIV in Scotland will be launched at a seminar hosted by HIV Scotland in Edinburgh today (1 November 2019).
This practice note is for inspectors, service providers and staff working in care homes, care at home, housing support and other registered care services.
Its purpose is to support inspectors to identify good and weak practice in the care of people living with HIV, support improvement and ensure the best possible outcomes for people experiencing care. Providers and staff can also use this to make sure they are implementing good practices and to show what a good quality care service should be like.
