Abstract

Date Presented 03/28/20

OTs are uniquely suited to work with individuals with HIV because of their ability to address complex medical, psychological, and social needs. However, OTs are rarely engaged in community-based HIV services. Using data from a needs assessment of individuals with HIV in Hawaii (n=398), we identify disparities related to disability and offer suggestions on how OTs can support health among this population through community-based practice.
