When hospital emergency departments (EDs) offer routine HIV testing to reach substance users and other high-risk patients, those who could benefit most frequently decline. Thus, an important health priority remains not only offering HIV testing to more patients, but developing strategies to increase test rates by working with patients who are reluctant to learn their HIV status. The proposed research will develop and evaluate the acceptability, feasibility, and preliminary efficacy of a mobile computer-based video intervention designed to increase HIV test rates among vulnerable patients in EDs and other high volume clinical settings nationwide.
