Study Recruitment: Examining the influence of pre-treatment HIV experiences on older gay men’s contemporary constructions of quality of life (QOL)

Project Title: Examining the influence of pre-treatment HIV experiences on older gay men’s contemporary constructions of quality of life (QOL)

Are you a man who self-identifies as gay, aged 50 years or older?
Do you currently live in Victoria?
If so, you are invited to participate in a research study

The purpose of this study is to deepen understandings of how experiences during the pre-treatment HIV period (i.e. approximately 1981-1996) – including clinical encounters, grief and loss, and sustained discrimination – have informed current perspectives of quality of life (QOL) and strategies to enhance well-being in the context of aging. Ultimately, the findings will contribute to meaningfully supporting the psychosocial well-being of older gay men.

This study has been approved by the Uvic Research Ethics Board and the UBC Research Ethics Board via the Provincial Research Ethics Platform as of June 1, 2021.
