BHIVA monitoring guidelines online for comment (2010)
Routine investigation and monitoring of adult HIV-1 infected individuals
The aim of this guideline is to present a consensus regarding the standard assessment and investigation at diagnosis of HIV infection and to describe the appropriate monitoring of HIV-positive individuals both on and off antiretroviral therapy.
This guideline does not address the investigation and management of specific conditions related to HIV and antiretroviral treatment, which are covered in other guidelines.
Within this guideline, assessment and monitoring of HIV-positive individuals has been categorized into the following areas:
- Initial diagnosis;
- ART-naive individuals;
- ART initiation;
- Initial assessment following commencement of ART;
- Routine monitoring on ART.
The consultation period deadline to receive all feedback is Friday 15 October 2010. http://www.bhiva.org/MonitoringGuidelines.aspx
