Who needs to be on board to implement HIV testing in the ED?
Emergency department leadership and staff are clearly essential to the HIV testing team, but working relationships outside and inside the hospital are critical, too. These will ensure adequate resources, organizational capacity, and linkage-to-care processes that can make or break a successful program.
Here we identify many players you might approach and suggest their potential contributions and concerns. Once engaged, your essential players must come to consensus on objectives, operations, and indicators of success. An early goal must be to identify and address their practical and political concerns and clearly define their roles and responsibilities.
