Living Well: An Expert Seminar on Social Care for People Living with HIV

1st November 2019 @ 1:00 pm - 5:00 pm

HIV Scotland are delighted to share the final agenda for their Living Well: Expert Seminar on Social Care.  The Living Well project is designed to bring together key partners, stakeholders and people living with HIV to discuss key issues facing older people living with HIV, and design creative solutions to meet the needs of people as they age with HIV, to ensure they live and age well.

When: Friday 1st November, 13:00 – 17:00

Where: 18 York Place, Edinburgh or Live Webcast

This Expert Seminar will look at how we can create Stigma-free Social Care services for people living with HIV as they age. HIV Scotland will be joined by partners, the National AIDS Trust (NAT) and the Care Inspectorate who will launch their “Indicators of Good Practice for People Living with HIV in Social Care.”

Although spaces are limited so please register soon. You may wish to share this among your networks, or on social media. There will also be a live stream so you can join from wherever you are in Scotland to take part. You can register for either option on their website here.
