Engagement in Care: Readiness Assessment

The online tool below contains information about recommended capacities to consider before implementing engagement in care strategies.

  • For any “We haven’t even started” or “We’ve been talking about this but haven’t taken action” responses, list next steps to increase capacity in the Comments/Next Steps field.
  • After you submit this form, you'll see a print-friendly version that includes your responses.
  • For help using this tool in your clinic, please contact your local AIDS Education and Training Center.
  • Please see below for printable versions of the Clinic Readiness Assessment as well as two other helpful forms

These tools are based on a template from: Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. (2005). Anti-Retroviral Treatment and Access to Services (ARTAS): An individual-level, multi-session intervention for people who are recently diagnosed with HIV: Implementation Manual.
