National Resource Center for Palliative Care in HIV/AIDS

Project Overview:

This project, conducted in collaboration with the U.S. Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA), developed an educational resource and training program for health care providers on palliative care and HIV/AIDS topics. The resource increases the capacity of the national AIDS Education Training Centers (AETCs) to train clinicians in palliative care, and to increase the HIV/AIDS care skills of palliative care clinicians. All aspects of the curriculum were piloted throughout the Northwest five-state AETC region, tested and evaluated for effectiveness.


The project produced a curriculum with training modules, educational materials, and resources on HIV/AIDS palliative care topics for health professionals. The curriculum is available at:
