Audit of management pathways for new HIV diagnoses

Complete for adults (16 or over) first seen in your service as newly diagnosed with HIV1 between 1 January 2018 and 31 March 2019:

  • Include individuals assessed in your service, regardless of where the HIV test was done
  • Exclude individuals diagnosed with HIV2
  • Exclude individuals who were not new diagnoses, eg those assessed because they were new to the UK but had previously received HIV care elsewhere. 

Please include individuals assessed in your service even if they subsequently transferred care elsewhere or stopped attending. In most cases responsibility for including an individual in this audit rests on the service within which the individual was first seen by an HIV specialist after having tested reactive/positive for HIV. An exception would be if an individual was initially diagnosed and seen by an HIV specialist during an inpatient admission, before post-diagnosis assessment for ongoing care and ART initiation at a separate outpatient service. In this situation the outpatient service should include the individual in the audit.

If your service had 40 or fewer eligible cases between 1 January 2018 and 31 March 2019, please audit them all. Otherwise please audit the last 40 such cases.
