Tackling HIV Testing resource pack

Increasing detection and diagnosis

The Tackling HIV Testing: increasing detection and diagnosis resource pack was released in October 2009. 

It is a comprehensive teaching pack for HIVGUM/ID clinicians or other ‘HIV champions’ who are engaged in educating non-HIV specialist colleagues about the need to increase testing rates.  The pack supports implementation of the UK national guidelines for HIV testing 2008 across a range of inpatient and outpatient settings.

Contents include:

  • template documents to assist in the development of a hospital-wide policy on HIV testing such as a protocol for HIV testing in adults, patient information and other useful resources for staff and patients
  • slide sets for use in grand rounds and educational meetings
  • HIV for non-HIV specialists: diagnosing the undiagnosed, the popular MEDFASH booklet for healthcare professionals in secondary care, which includes the UK national guidelines for HIV testing 2008
