Complementary therapy provision for people with HIV disease

This project was an independent evaluation of the provision of complementary therapies at a community HIV clinic in Northwest London

It included a systematic literature review, qualitative feedback from staff and clients and retrospective analysis of medical record data. The results were very positive and will be used to inform future commissioning decisions.
