In HIV research we work with peer researchers because of the high value placed on lived experience, their connection to the HIV community and their prime role as cultural interpreters. Working as a peer researcher and with peer researchers brings closeness and a coming to terms with joy and resilience as well as vulnerability to life, changes, illness and grieving, dying and death.
Are we too close or is emotional stress just part of the job? Are our strategies for self-care working? On this show, peer researchers and researchers share strategies for self-care and resilience.
"What's Hot with Peer Researchers?" is an online talk show about community-based research that has people living with HIV as the main protagonists.
The show will be held online using Instant Presenter. To ensure you’re able to participate, test your system’s compatibility. We encourage you to be an active participant, and you can learn how by watching this short video tutorial.
