Principal Investigator: LaRon Earnest Nelson, PhD, RN, FNP, FNAP, FAAN

The purpose of this project is to pilot test the client-centered care cascade coordination (C5) intervention model with ACB individuals in Peel Region. The PI will work with business and technology partners to migrate the current paper-based client-centered care coordination (C4) model for HIV prevention to a mobile-web app platform. This project will also evaluate the implementation of the C5 model for HIV risk reduction and linkage to HIV care. The PI will work with implementation partners to implement C5 with ACB communities in Peel region. Lessons learned will inform provincial level policy discussions and decisions regarding best strategies for expanding implementation of C5 in other Ontario regions.
