Taking HIV medication may require a person to take it at inopportune times and in public environments. Fear or anxiety over inadvertent disclosure of HIV status may result in delayed or skipped doses (Sweeney and Vanable, 2016). Therefore, the final strategy would include developing a plan for scheduling medication and explaining to the patient how each medication should be taken (Arcangelo and Peterson, 2013). A medication schedule plan must consider lifestyle factors suchas work schedules and privacy issues.ReferencesArcangelo, V. P., & Peterson, A. M. (Eds.). (2013).
