  • Staff accepting new roles (Clinic and HIV prevention program staff)

  • Clinic Staff:

    • Nursing staff required to provide ABC (Abstinence, Be Faithful, Condom Use) of HIV prevention education to all Family Planning (FP) clients.

    • Nurses provide post test negative results, and when performing HIV rapid testing provide preliminary positive results as needed.

    • Front office staff secure the client’s general consent which now includes routine HIV screening.

    • Lab Assistants/Medical Assistants perform HIV rapid testing and perform venipuncture on all FP/HIV integration clients in need of a blood serology.

  • HIV Counselor/Educator

    • Monitor HIV integration documentation and assist with quality assurance activities (client visit records and lab paperwork).

    • Provide routine in-service trainings for all staff participating in the FP/HIV integration process (this includes ABC of HIV Prevention, HIV skill building, age appropriateness, cultural sensitivity, general family planning information and HIV rapid testing).

    • Perform FP/HIV Outreach to support Clinic FP services.

    • Counsel high risk clients as needed.

    • Have now restructured one of the HIV Integration project positions to coordinate daily activities across all of the health clinics and rotate themselves and assigned staff to all health clinics.

  • Properly documenting & reporting client HIV integration visits.

    • Working with staff to properly document and report client visit.

    • Requesting through billing contractor (Ahlers) that data program be upgraded to include Cicatelli age group reporting requirements. This will enable all reports to be electronically generated. Because of the current difference in breakdowns the staff is required to generate this report manually, which creates data reporting discrepancies. Conflicting reported age groups are:

      • Ahlers reported age group is 30 – 44, and 45 – over.

      • Cicatelli reported age groups are 30-34, 35-39, 40-44, and 45- over.

  • Need for HIV rapid testing to support project activities.

    • With the availability of HIV rapid testing there is over 95% client participation in HIV screening and nearly 100% post test counseling.

    • With standard HIV serology testing post test counseling drops to 33 %, which prior to the addition of rapid testing was 18%.

    • Revise HCPHES Family Planning polices and procedures to include standardized HIV Integration activities and rapid testing.

    • Staff support is significantly increased with the addition of HIV rapid testing.
