This qualification is intended to enable lay people and/or health care workers to help individuals and/or groups to approach the HIV/AIDS pandemic and any other dread disease in an integrated way so that the condition may be managed satisfactorily.
On completion, the Patient Advocate is able to assist those infected or affected by HIV/AIDS and/or other dread disease to understand and accept the condition and take positive and necessary steps to enrich the quality of life of the patient and deal with the consequences of the pandemic.
The counseling skills component is intended specifically to equip Patient Advocates with the skills to assist patients in finding solutions with managing HIV, and effectively addressing patient concerns. Counseling skills better equip Patient Advocates to know their scope of practice, behave ethically and know when to refer patients.
