Abstract

In order to explore perceptions of HAART influencing treatment uptake, in-depth interviews were carried out with consecutive patients offered HAART through an HIV clinic in Brighton, UK. Declining HAART was characterised by doubting personal need for HAART, having concerns about HAART, and requiring autonomy in treatment decisions. Accepting HAART was associated with recognising personal need for HAART, addressing concerns about HAART and believing personal circumstances to be conducive to starting treatment. This study extends previous research by exploring in-depth the content and origins of treatment perceptions among those accepting and declining a clinically indicated treatment recommendation and has implications for the development of interventions to provide decision support.
