Answer

Answer

Provide frank, complete, nonjudgmental information on the routes of transmission. Teach HIV-infected patients how to minimize the risk to others.

For patient education information, see the Sexual Health Center, Rapid HIV Test, and HIV/AIDS.

For more information, see the CDC guidelines for HIV Infection: detection, counseling, and referral and revised recommendations for HIV testing of adults, adolescents, and pregnant women in health-care settings.
