AHA Affiliate Releases Toolkit for ED-Based HIV Testing Programs

August 7, 2007

HIV Testing Programs Toolkit, Health Research and Educational Trust: HRET, an affiliate of the American Hospital Association, has launched a no-cost, online toolkit to facilitate planning, implementation or expansion of hospital emergency department-based HIV testing programs for clinicians and administrators. The toolkit examines different approaches, considerations and resources needed in making HIV testing a routine part of ED treatment. The toolkit can be used to guide program-design and resource-allocation decisions, as well as to inform policies for ED HIV testing. The toolkit is based on HRET findings from site visits and interviews with ED personnel and was supported by CDC and the National Center for HIV/AIDS, STD and TB Prevention (HRET, July 2007).
