Today s goals

Today’s Goals

  • Describe the theoretical and practical underpinnings of Prevention with Positives programs

  • Provide a brief overview of the Motivational Interview process for promoting behavior change

  • Describe the key elements of a brief motivational intervention focusing on prevention with PLWH/A

Why the emphasis on prevention with positives

Why the Emphasis on Prevention with Positives?

  • Every person

  • infected with HIV

  • was exposed by

  • a person who was

  • HIV-Positive.

What is prevention with positives pwp

New generation of prevention programs targeting individuals who

Current emphasis arises from

What is Prevention with Positives (PwP)?

  • Have already tested positive for HIV

  • May be at risk of transmitting the disease

  • CDC 5-year plan to reduce rates of infection by 1/2 over the next 5 years

Why the new focus on prevention with positives

Why the New Focus on Prevention with Positives?

  • Advancing HIV Prevention (AHP)

  • New Strategies for a Changing Epidemic

  • September 2003

  • CDC initiative to reduce barriers to early diagnosis of HIV and increase access to quality medical care, treatment, and ongoing prevention services for PLWH/A

Why a new initiative for hiv prevention

Why a New Initiative for HIV Prevention?

  • 40,000 new HIV infections still occur in the United States each year

  • One-quarter of the 850,000 - 950,000 PLWH/A in the U.S. do not yet know they are infected

  • Recent increases in syphilis diagnoses among men who know they are HIV-infected suggests an increase in risk behaviors among PLWH/A and their partners

Local trends

Local Trends

  • Insert local/regional epidemiological charts and/or graphs which provide evidence of increases in new infections related to engagement in high risk activities (i.e., increase/spikes in other STI rates)

Ahp initiative strategies

AHP Initiative Strategies

  • Make HIV testing a routine part of medical care when and where patients receive care

  • Use new models to diagnose HIV infection outside of traditional medical settings

  • Prevent new infections by working with HIV positive people and their partners

  • Continue to decrease mother-to-child HIV transmission

Prevent new infections by working with plwh a

Prevent New Infections by Working with PLWH/A

  • Publish Recommendations for Incorporating HIV Prevention into the Medical Care of Persons with HIV Infection (CDC, HRSA, NIH, and IDSA)

  • Fund demonstration projects to provide PCM for people with HIV who have ongoing high-risk behavior

  • Fund demonstration projects of new models of PCRS

  • In 2004, implement these services

How does it work

How Does it Work?

  • Individual-focused PwP interventions

  • help PLWH/A reduce their transmission rates through theoretically-based interventions which--

  • Help PLWH/A feel better about themselves

  • Decrease the stigma associated with HIV

  • Help PLWH/A take responsibility for their lives and for stopping the spread of HIV

How is this accomplished

How is this Accomplished?

Prevention with Positives programs aim to build self-esteem and enrich coping skills through supportive services such as

  • Peer-based workshops and focus groups

  • One-on-one transmission risk counseling

  • Psycho-social assessment and supportive

  • interventions

  • Case management

  • HIV status support groups

I know there must be a theory in there somewhere

I know there must be a theory in there somewhere…

  • Yup.

  • Most PwP programs are based on one or many of the seven most popular theoretical models of (HIV) health promotion/risk behavior change

  • Behavior Change!

Transtheoretical model prochaska diclemente 1984

Transtheoretical Model(Prochaska & DiClemente, 1984)

Six stages of behavior change

  • Precontemplation:Not even thinking about it

  • Contemplation:Thinking about it

  • Determination/Preparation:Taking steps to start behavior

  • Action: Person tries behavior

  • Maintenance: Person does behaviorregularly

  • Relapse: Person slips up & needs to make adjustments

Transtheoretical model of behavior change

Transtheoretical Model of Behavior Change

Transtheoretical model prochaska diclemente 19841

Transtheoretical Model(Prochaska & DiClemente, 1984)

Transtheoretical model prochaska diclemente 19842

Transtheoretical Model(Prochaska & DiClemente, 1984)

  • Change is an incremental process and not a discrete outcome

  • Change takes time

  • Harm/risk reduction is a good goal

  • Relapse is the rule, not the exception

  • Two dimensions: stages and processes

Key assumptions of the model

Brief Motivational Interviewing Works!

But it must have structure and purpose…

First things first

First Things First!

  • Work with the patient to identify a behavior to be targeted for change

  • Identify where the patient stands on the readiness-to-change continuum

  • Establish with the patient incremental goals – appropriate to their readiness - to move toward the desired change



  • Document, Document, Document!

  • Ensure full staff understanding of, buy-in for, and consistency in delivery of the plan.

Initial plan, subsequent encounters, outcomes, and changes to the plan
