Professors Explore End-of-Life Needs for HIV/AIDS Patients in U.S. Appalachian Region
July 31, 2013
A new two-year study, funded by the National Institutes of Health's National Institute of Nursing Research, will examine what services are lacking for residents of the Appalachian regions of Tennessee and Alabama who are dying from HIV/AIDS. According to Sadie Hutson, the project's principal investigator, "End-of-life planning and care are especially critical in high-prevalence areas of the United States, such as Southern Appalachia; yet very little is known about the needs or the availability of end-of-life services for those in this region."
