(p.137) Chapter 11 HIV/AIDS
Palliative Care for Non-cancer Patients

Gabi Brogan

Rob George

Oxford University Press

This chapter focuses on the care of people with HIV/AIDS in the UK, and assumes that, for the foreseeable future, AIDS will be fatal and HIV will be transmissible only through certain body fluids or sexually. It contends that in the industrialised world specialist palliative care is still relevant to HIV disease, although the context and character of its practice will vary over time. It also argues that the lessons palliative care specialists have learnt from the care of patients with HIV/AIDS give valuable insights for other diseases.

Keywords:   patient care, epidemiology, HIV transmission, industrialised world, specialist palliative care
