A Service Delivery Model for Addressing Activity and Social Participation Needs of People Living with HIV
This model is a service delivery model that aims to provide a framework for occupational therapists to design and evaluate services for people living with HIV. It focuses on designing and evaluating interventions that target outcomes in activity and social participation. It comprises of the following components, prominent features of living with HIV, service delivery principles, promising interventions, and person-environment interactions across micro, meso, and macro levels of the environment. Micro level of environment is the relationships in personal social networks and with clinicians, e.g., occupational therapists. Meso level environments includes the systems in organization, e.g., policies. Marco level environments includes socio-political contexts, e.g., organization of funding of health systems, social construction. The endpoints of this model are activity and social participation outcomes. It is a client-centered, strength-based, culturally proficient, and holistic model. It facilitates communication among professions, people living with HIV, and related personnel on service delivery, facilitates understanding on needs, goals, and potential interventions of people living with HIV, and provides a framework to compare current practice to develop more effective services.
