A 2016 edition of ‘Living Confidently With HIV’
Last year marked the release of the newest version of ‘Living Confidently With HIV – A Self-Help Book For People Living With HIV’. This is a book which Dr Claudia Herbert co-authored and we have been pleased with its positive reception by those dealing with HIV and also those working within the field of HIV treatment and care.
“A book hoping to normalise the experience of living with HIV”
This article showcases a book review which the journal ‘HIV Nursing’ wrote, with the hope of highlighting some of its most helpful use cases and showing how the book can provide a positive aid to dealing with HIV. The review was written by Michelle Croston, a Specialist Nurse at North Manchester General Hospital.
Michelle draws on her own experience working in the field of HIV care to provide a review which explores the book’s content while always referring back to practical examples of how it could be useful to HIV patients in the real world:
“For me, having the ability to suggest to a patient that they could read this book will hopefully help to alleviate the shame and stigma that PLHIV often carry. As the book comes in an iBook and Kindle version it is ideal for people to have some privacy when reading.”
“Whether you are a healthcare professional, somebody who is interested in supporting someone living with HIV, or living with HIV yourself, the book is informative, written in a clear and direct style, filled with helpful facts, practical tips and self-help guidelines.”
We’ve included a link here to read the full review as a PDF version. Please feel free to share this with anybody who you think might benefit from this as we would like the book to have a positive impact on as many lives as possible.
