Testing for HIV is a critical step in determining appropriate patient care, but many providers do not have a standard procedure in place to test patients. This brief covers not only the basics of HIV testing but also recommended guidelines for implementing opt-out testing at a health center, as well as important considerations and recommendations for health care staff.
PCDC created this brief in partnership with Cicatelli Associates, Inc. and Denver Prevention Training Center.
