Engagement in Care Toolkit: Which engagement in care interventions might work for your clinic?
Developed by the AETC Engagement in Care Workgroup
Note: This Working Group was convened to gather information about interventions that may have some utility in the improvement of care entry and retention. It should be noted that there are few randomized clinical trials or robust observational cohort data with biologic outcomes to support many interventions at this time. Therefore this chart is not intended to constitute recommendations that these interventions should be implemented, but rather to display the range of available options and to convey some sense of their strengths and challenges in the context of available evidence. We encourage that interventions be structured in such a way that outcome data may be collected and evaluated to advance the knowledge base in these important areas. For help using this tool in your clinic, please contact your local AIDS Education and Training Center.
