Guidelines for Nurse Led HIV Clinic
The HIV outpatient caseload has increased dramatically over the last few years. In 2005 and 2006 there were around 130 referrals each year. There appears to be no slow down in these numbers so far this year. By the end of 2006 the cumulative number of patients seen in the clinic is greater than 600.
