OraQuick is a safe, rapid test that accurately identifies HIV in as little as 20 minutes. By providing an accurate, quick method for detecting a person’s serostatus and access to immediate post-test counseling, rapid testing has a crucial role in identifying HIV status and improving post-test counseling rates in populations who are at high risk of HIV infection and high failure to return rates. This prospective randomized control trial compared the educational effectiveness of a fifteen-minute post-test counseling video with the normal practice of a session with an HIV counselor.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Mean Knowledge Score within both groups.

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Overall condom intention measures and Condom Self efficacy measures

Estimated Enrollment: 130
Study Start Date: May 2005
Estimated Study Completion Date: October 2005
Detailed Description:

A convenience sample of stable patients presenting to the walk-in section of the Jacobi Medical Center Adult ED were recruited for rapid HIV testing. After consenting for the rapid HIV test and completing measures on condom intention and condom use self-efficacy, participants were randomized to either a fifteen-minute HIV post-test educational video available in English or to an HIV counselor for post-test counseling. Afterwards, both groups completed a measure of HIV knowledge assessing relevant testing information and level of satisfaction. An equivalence analysis was carried out to assess whether the video was at least as good as counseling, measured by total score on the knowledge questionnaire, with a lower equivalence bound of -5%.
