Abstract

The objective of this project was to develop and implement electronic access to HIV/AIDS information resources at Glide Memorial Church in San Francisco, CA. This involved developing tailored Web-based access to the relevant information for the Glide Clinic patients. In addition, the project deployed workstations in 2 clinic areas and provided support to clinic patients as they learned to access the information resources. This article describes the experience with information retrieval in a clinic setting for underserved patients, including lessons learned, effective strategies, and anecdotes of effect on patients. Required nursing informatics competencies in this particular area are also addressed.
