HIV/AIDS Counselors and Case Managers

Experience, Skills, and Personality Traits

HIV/AIDS counselors and case managers need experience working in hospitals and health centers counseling patients. They must have a genuine curiosity about the human body and the diseases that afflict patients in our society. Since HIV/AIDS is a serious disease, they must also have the ability to provide emotional support to patients who are likely to be experiencing fear and anxiety, as well as the ability to communicate clearly the facts about HIV/AIDS and its treatment. Case managers must also know how to help patients through the various stages of treatments as they cope with their disease.
