Ana Amélia Nascimento da Silva Bones Márcia Rosa da Costa Sílvio César Cazella About the authors

The objective of this study was to analyze the physicians’ perception regarding the building of new knowledge about the initial management of the user with reactive rapid HIV test in Primary Health Care. The teaching methodology was the problematization methodology using the modality of distance learning. It is a critical action-research in a reflexive process through an interactive educational module offered in the Specialization Course of the the Open University of the Brazilian National Health System-SUS/Federal University of Health Sciences of Porto Alegre (UNASUS/UFCSPA). The discourses are distributed in three categories of analysis: practice scenarios, comprehensive care and continuing education. In the analysis, the apprehension and the commitment to reality, associated with the theorizing, generate a reflective plan of conduct. According to the 90-90- 90 target, there is an expectation to broaden diagnosis; however, it is necessary to make an expanded reading of the practice of disclosing the result of the test.
