  • TITLE: Concept Analysis: Engagement in Personal HIV Management

    AUTHORS: Matt L. Pimentel

    KEYWORDS: HIV, Engagement, Inmates, Inmate Health, HAART, Concept Analysis

    ABSTRACT: A concept analysis is an endeavor in social sciences to ensure proper usage of the term among researchers, theorists, and practitioners. The concept of engagement has recently been touted as the term describing HIV-infected individuals who are compliant with their highly active antiretroviral therapy (HAART) medications. Accordingly, engagement has also come to mean that the full compliance with not just HAART, but also compliance with lab tests, medical visits, and counseling services. Post-release incarcerated male inmates that are HIV-infected (IMIHIV) are an especially vulnerable population in regard to access to care and compliance with HAART medications and services. Therefore, full understanding of the meaning and context of the term engagement is imperative to begin a conversation about these individuals. Thus, engagement in personal HIV management will be stressed.
