The Clinical Resource Team is responsible for conducting quality assurance reviews of State funded grantees that provide clinical and/or case management services to individuals with HIV disease, and providers of STD clinical services. To accomplish this, the team staff conduct periodic site reviews, provide technical assistance by telephone and on-site as needed, develop and distribute clinical and case management standards and conduct investigations into allegations of client abuse and neglect. The team also provides consultation regarding HIV disease and other STD's to health care professionals and the general public as requested.
HIV Standards and monitoring tools can be found in the HIV Medical and Support Service Categories (formerly known as the Taxonomy)
Standards provided by Clinical Resources include standards for STD clinics to use.
