Patient information sheet

Registration with SHM

In the Netherlands, following a positive diagnosis, you will usually be referred to one of the 24 HIV treatment centres by either your family doctor or the HIV testing centre. Each new patient will receive information from his/her physician about the registration and monitoring by SHM.

Information sheets for new participants

Once you have provided your expression of content for SHM to use your data for research purposes through your treating doctor, y through an information sheet provided by your physician, you will next be informed about what happens with your data and about your right to withdraw your expression of consent. If you have any questions after reading the information, you can send us an e-mail.

Brochure: 'From diagnosis to optimal treatment: every patient counts'
