This is a survey of your experiences in receiving treatment from physicians
for HIV. It is important to have your consent to do this, so we need to explain some things first.
Why is the survey being done?
We want to understand how what you experience
in treatment relates to the good
the treatment is. The survey will help us identify two things: 1) good treatment from the perspective of the people with HIV; 2) how good treatment relates to how well – and how long – people live with HIV. What we learn from the survey may help us to provide and receive better treatment.
How long does it take?
The survey should take about 20 minutes to complete.
Do I have to take part?
No; your participation is voluntary and anonymous: no information about who you are will be collected. You can skip questions or stop answering the survey at any point—e.g., by just closing your browser’s window.
Will it help me personally?
No, it is not designed to help you personally, although the questions might help you think about what good care means to you.
How will the answers be used?
The answers will be used in scientific publications and will help create policy about medical practice in HIV. We will post a summary of the research findings with thebody.com for you to read.
So, please choose below to continue to the survey or to exit back to the main site of thebody.com. Thank you for your time; we know it is valuable.
