‘Talking Points’ is a recently launched on-line resource for people living with HIV that aims to help them prepare and participate in decisions about their treatment and treatment options with their doctors.
Through a short series of anonymous questions about their health, users of Talking Point will generate a personalised ‘checklist’ of issues that would need to be discussed with their doctor and health teams when choosing the best treatment option for them.
“Talking points is designed to help you talk to your doctor about HIV treatment. Having the right information available to you and your doctor will help you get the best out of HIV treatment, and reduce the chances of problems developing in the future.
“Not all HIV drugs are suitable for everyone, and some will work better for you than others.
“By answering the questions you will be able to build up a list of important issues to talk to your doctor about, so that the treatment you receive is right for you”
