To evaluate the experience of HIV+ patients with pharmaceutical care based on the ability-motivation-opportunity methodology.


Cross-sectional, unicentric study. The participants included were HIV+ patients attended during November-2016 and to whom the IEXPAC questionnaire was conducted. This validated questionnaire allows to know the experience of chronic patients about the health care they receive.


91 patients were included. The overall mean score of the IEXPAC questionnaire was: 9.7 ± 0,3. The items that obtained higher scores were: respect lifestyle (9.9 ± 0.5); coordination to offer good care (9.9 ± 0.5); helping to continue treatment (9.9 ± 0.4); making sure that I take medication (9.9 ± 0.4); worried about well-being (9.9 ± 0.4). The points with the possibility of improvements included: worried about me when I get home after being in hospital (8.7 ± 1.2).
