The DC HIV Medical Case Management (MCM) guidelines standardize the linkage of treatment indicators and client health outcomes to acuity assessment and comprehensive case management activities. Tools developed stressed the importance of viral load suppression for clients on antiretroviral treatment. Medical case managers track CD4 and viral load and ensure that clients are engaged in medical care. Medical case managers without clinical background are empowered to ensure positive clinical outcome for clients. Many tools developed ensure consistency in service provision. The active community involvement created a sense of ownership that facilitates adoption of new tools. Any program implementing medical case management or treatment adherence in any setting regardless of the funding stream will benefit from this workshop. This is a panel discussion, giving the speakers opportunity to share various aspects of the critical components while allowing ample time for discussions, and answer questions from the participants.
