RichardFerri.com:"Welcome to RichardFerri.com! The goal of this site is to give you information on the real needs of HIV positive people and their medical care. I am an AIDS specialist who is also HIV positive. So my view on living with HIV is more than just lessons learned from a textbook or a clinical exam. I live with this virus and know how it can make you feel. One of the areas that I am impassioned about is symptom management. Most clinicians do not know how to treat the ongoing symptoms of HIV disease. Many shy away from pain and symptom management because it is too difficult. I welcome treating people's symptoms and getting them back on the road to health."

Karen Mercereau, RN, RN Patient Advocates, PLLC:"For over 7 years, we at RN Patient Advocates have worked independently with patients to assist them in finding the best healthcare and treatment outcomes possible. Do you have a medical crisis? Wonder what doctors might best help you? Have a mystery illness that no one can diagnose? Have several doctors who donít speak to each other? Wonder what all of your medications actually do for you? Experienced clinical RNs are a treasure trove of information and, working as independent RN Patient Advocates, can stand by your side through your illness: asking the healthcare questions you donít know how to ask, teaching you what is really going on in your body, researching and teaching you the full range of treatment options, guiding you through the maze of the healthcare system so it can best serve you."

    HIV/AIDS Nursing Certification Board, HANCB:"HANCB has developed protocols for re-certification requirements to ensure ACRNs have continued to maintain competence and/or expand their HIV/AIDS knowledge base within the four (4) year certification/re-certification period. There are two (2) ways a nurse may re-certify as an ACRN. The first is by re-examination. The second is by continuing education credits. Re-certification protocols will be reviewed by the Re-Certification Committee at least once a year to determine if the requirements are complete and meet the goals of maintaining competence and/or enhancing HIV/AIDS nursing practice."

    The Pills Identification Test: A Tool to Assess Adherence to Antiretroviral Therapy, Journal of the American Medical Association:"To the Editor: Adherence to antiretroviral (ARV) treatment among patients with HIV (human immunodeficiency virus) infection is a key issue in controlling viral replication1 and preventing progression to AIDS (acquired immunodeficiency syndrome) or death.2 Assessment of adherence by prescribers often results in overestimating the patient's level of adherence.3 Therefore, simple and reliable tools to independently assess adherence are needed."
