We recommend that you work through all the pages of the resource. This should not take more than one to two hours. The pages are presented in a logical order to help you learn, but you are free to jump between them if you prefer.
Most of the sections of the resource contain information for you to read, with illustrations. They provide facts about the current status of HIV, details to help you diagnose HIV in dermatology and venereology, and practical information on the testing process.
The case histories provide an opportunity for you to reflect and consolidate your learning. They can also be used as presentations to share with colleagues or students in educational sessions.
The knowledge test will help you identify gaps in your knowledge and point you towards sections of the resource providing information to address these. You can do it at any time, but it will be most useful when you have finished working through the resource. If you score 8 out of 10 or more in the knowledge test, you can print off a certificate of successful completion.
After working through HIV in DV you should:
- Be able to identify the benefits of HIV testing
- Know when to offer an HIV test
- Understand how HIV testing works
- Feel able to offer an HIV test and give results
