The process of conveying an HCV test result (previously post-test counselling) to the person being tested, irrespective of the specific result, is shaped by the type of test performed, the setting of the consultation, the reason for testing and the extent, if any, of additional testing required in determining the true HCV status of the person. The person who requests the test is responsible for ensuring that the delivery of the test result is carried out in a setting conducive to discussing the implications of the result and addressing the issues that the result raises (see section Conveying a confirmed positive result). Where an HCV antibody test has been the only test requested, it is important to convey to the person being tested that further viral studies are required to determine their actual HCV status. In presenting results to people from countries where English is not the primary language, interpreter services should be accessed. Care should be taken to provide adequate privacy of consultation in a prison setting.
