If you decide to participate in this research, you will be asked to do the following:
1.) Attend a visit with either a pharmacist or case manager 2.) Attend a visit with a doctor (if not seen by a doctor in more than 3 months) 3.) Labs - With your first visit with your pharmacist or case manager - At 4 to 8 weeks - At 12 to 16 weeks - At 24 to 36 weeks 4.) Phone calls with a pharmacist or case manager at least: - 2 weeks after first visit - Before next HIV medication refill - Monthly after until the end of the study 5.) Follow up visits with other healthcare providers if necessary
During the first visit with a pharmacist or case manager, we will make sure you are not having any problems taking your medicine. During the phone follow up calls, we will continue to see how you are doing with your medications. You may have follow up visits with other health care providers, such as your doctor, if we think there are other areas which they can help with. All visits will take place at CARES Community Health.
Lab tests will be completed at least three times. Lab tests can be done at a Quest near you or at CARES Community Health. These lab tests are standard of care for patients with a non-suppressed viral load. Your lab tests will require blood draws. Each lab draw requires 3 mL of blood depending on which tests you may need. This may be different for each person depending on the previous labs you have had done. Your participation in this research will end at your last set of lab tests, which will be at least 24 weeks, after your initial appointment with either a pharmacist or case manager.
If you were not to take part in this research, you would still have these lab tests done, be seen by your doctor, and may see other healthcare providers as your doctor recommends. By taking part in this study, you will have a visit with either a pharmacist or case manager who will focus only on your HIV medications. You will also receive more frequent phone follow up calls and refill reminders.
The treatment you get will be chosen by chance, like flipping a coin. Neither you nor the study doctor will choose what treatment you get. You will have an equal chance of being given each treatment.
