An HIV informed consent form is necessary for a doctor to administer an HIV antibody test to a patient. An HIV antibody test determines whether a patient's body contains HIV antibodies. Samples of blood or oral fluid will be taken from the patient for the test. Patients sign the form in order to acknowledge their understanding of the contagious nature of the virus and their right to request to see the results of the test. By acknowledging the risks, the individual can prove they were aware of the risks of spreading HIV/AIDS if they test positive and infect another.
Even though HIV isn’t the same type of death sentence that it was 20 or 30 years ago, there’s still a lot of stigma around it. Patients that know they’ve been sexually active are often hesitant to take the test and, by extension, sign the consent form.
It’s up to the person administering the test or interacting with the patient to let them know the pros far outweigh the cons. HIV, as long as it’s detected on time and treatment is adhered to, has a much better prognosis than it did in the past.
