 (submitted: November 21, 2019)
Symptom Burden Score [ Time Frame: Baseline, 3 months and 6 months; period 1 = 1-6 weeks (baseline), period 2 = 6-18 weeks (3 months), period 3 = >18 weeks (6 months) ]
The Symptom Burden Score is an expanded version of the 20-item HIV symptom index. The score is calculated for the 28 most common symptoms in persons living with HIV. Each symptom is given a score ranging from 0 to 4 with the scores indicating the following: 0 (not experienced) , 1 (It doesn't bother me), 2 (It bothers me a little), 3 (It bothers me), or 4 (It bothers me a lot). The higher the score (closer to 4), the greater the symptom burden (worse outcome).
Original Primary Outcome Measures  ICMJE
 (submitted: June 8, 2017)
Decrease symptom frequency and intensity in the intervention group as compared to the control group. [ Time Frame: Six Months ]
The PROMIS-29 includes seven health related quality of life domains (Physical Functioning, Anxiety, Depression, Fatigue, Sleep Disturbance, Social Functioning, and Pain), and the pain domain has two subdomains (interference and intensity). Each of the 7 domains has four 5-level items (i.e., 16 decrements each). In addition to these items, pain intensity is assessed using a single 11-point numeric rating scale anchored between no pain (0) and worse imaginable pain. Raw scores are transformed using the T-score metric based on the item response theory calibrations in which scores have a mean of 50 and standard deviation of 10 for the general population in the US. T-scores can be estimated using the scoring tables listed in the PROMIS manuals. A higher PROMIS T-score implies more of the concept being measured; for instance, a higher PROMIS score on physical function indicates better functioning, whereas a higher score on depression indicates more severe depressive symptoms.

Score on Patient-Reported Outcomes Measurement Information System® (PROMIS)-29 [ Time Frame: Baseline, 3 months, and 6 months ]
The PROMIS-29 includes seven health related quality of life domains (Physical Functioning, Anxiety, Depression, Fatigue, Sleep Disturbance, Social Functioning, and Pain), and the pain domain has two subdomains (interference and intensity). Each of the 7 domains has four 5-level items (i.e., 16 decrements each). In addition to these items, pain intensity is assessed using a single 11-point numeric rating scale anchored between no pain (0) and worse imaginable pain. Raw scores, except pain intensity, are transformed using the T-score metric based on the item response theory calibrations in which scores have a mean of 50 and standard deviation of 10 for the general population in the US. T-scores can be estimated using scoring tables listed in the PROMIS manuals. A higher PROMIS T-score implies more of the concept being measured; i.e., a higher PROMIS score on physical function indicates better functioning, whereas a higher score on depression indicates more severe depressive symptoms.
Original Secondary Outcome Measures  ICMJE Not Provided
Current Other Pre-specified Outcome Measures
 (submitted: November 21, 2019)
  • Change in Score on SF-12 [ Time Frame: 3 months and 6 months ]
    12-Item Medical Outcomes Study Short Form (SF-12) is a health survey to measure health-related quality of life.
  • Score on Engagement With Health Care Provider Scale [ Time Frame: Baseline, 3 months, and 6 months ]
    Engagement with Health Care Provide scale is a 13-item scale in which subjects rate their interactions with their health care providers on a four-point scale with 1=always true and 4=never true. A total score can be calculated to create a possible range of 13-52. A low score (closer to 13) indicates greater provider engagement between the patient and provider.
  • Score of the VAS [ Time Frame: Baseline, 3 months, and 6 months ]
    The Visual Analogue Scale (VAS) measures adherence to antiretroviral therapy (ART). VAS asks subjects to indicate a point on a line that shows their best guess about how much of each drug they have taken. 0% means they have taken no drug, 50% means they have taken half their drugs, and 100% means they have taken every single dose.
  • Score on Fried's Frailty Phenotype [ Time Frame: Baseline, 3 months, and 6 months ]
    Fried's frailty phenotype is a combination of five scores: weight loss in the last year, exhaustion, physical activity, walk time for a 15 foot interval, and grip strength. The frailty condition is defined as meeting the definition of frailty for at least 3 of the listed scores.

  • Improve engagement with healthcare provider. [ Time Frame: Six Months ]
    Engagement with Health Care Provide scale is a 13-item scale in which subjects rate their interactions with their health care providers on a four-point scale with 1=always true and 4=never true. A low score indicates greater provider engagement.
  • Improve adherence to antiretroviral therapy (ART). [ Time Frame: Six Months ]

VAS asks subjects to indicate a point on a line that shows their best guess about how much of each drug they have taken. 0% means they have taken no drug, 50% means they have taken half their drugs, and 100% means they have taken every single dose.
  • Decrease frailty as measured by Fried's frailty phenotype [ Time Frame: Six Months ]
 
Descriptive Information
Brief Title  ICMJE Video Information Provider for HIV-Associated Non-AIDS (VIP-HANA) Symptoms
Official Title  ICMJE Video Information Provider for HIV-Associated Non-AIDS (VIP-HANA) Symptoms
Brief Summary The purpose of this study is to use technology to improve symptom status and ultimately improve patient centered outcomes in people living with HIV/AIDS (PLWHA). The primary purpose of the intervention (VIP-HANA) is to improve symptom status. The investigators hypothesize that VIP-HANA will improve symptom frequency and intensity.
Detailed Description

As PLWHA age, they are developing chronic illnesses and co-morbid conditions that are often seen in older HIV negative patients. HANA conditions (e.g., cardiovascular disease, liver disease, diabetes, and asthma) are becoming more common as PLWHA age.

An individual's ability to identify and self-manage symptoms of HIV illness has been shown to improve patient outcomes and quality of life. The investigators will develop and pilot test the Video Information Provider (VIP), a web application (app) that delivered HIV-related symptom self-care strategies for PLWHA for 13 common (non-HANA) HIV/AIDS symptoms. There is a need to identify the symptom experience of PLWHA with HANA conditions.

The aim is to compare the efficacy of VIP-HANA to a control arm for ameliorating symptom frequency and intensity and secondary health outcomes in 100 PLWHA with HANA conditions over 6 months.
