How do treatment priorities differ between patients in HIV care and their providers? A mixed-methods study.
The authors asked patients in HIV care and providers to prioritize topic areas to address during routine visits. They found that patients and providers showed high discordance in rank order priorities. Patients ranked social domains such as HIV stigma highly; a higher proportion of providers prioritized substance use domains. HIV stigma was a higher priority for patients in care fewer than 6 years, nonwhite patients, and younger patients. Patients' priorities differed between men and women, white race vs. other races, and Latinos vs. non-Latinos.
