This has just been released by HRSA:
The Guide for HIV/AIDS Clinical Care, a comprehensive roadmap for physicians, nurse-practitioners, dentists and other clinicians on how best to manage the long-term care of patients with HIV/AIDS, is now available online.
Produced by the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA), the updated volume covers more than 90 topics and provides guidance on a broad range of clinical care issues, including testing and assessment, health care maintenance and disease prevention, oral health, antiretroviral medications, and more.
“Providing care and treatment to people living with HIV/AIDS is a key goal for our agency,” said HRSA Administrator Mary Wakefield, Ph.D., R.N. “The Guide for HIV/AIDS Clinical Care is precisely the kind of information that we strive to disseminate as widely as possible, so that we can share our expertise, stimulate ideas and encourage best practices for those working with this community.”
Among the major trends identified in the guide:
The Guide is one in a series of HIV/AIDS protocols that HRSA has developed to assist providers in applying best practices in clinical management. Funded by HRSA’s Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program, the largest federal effort focused solely on HIV/AIDS care, the guide was developed with the HRSA-funded AIDS Education and Training Centers (AETC) National Resource Center.
