  • Description:
    This guide describes recommendations for conducting pretesting counseling for pregnant women if they or their sex partner live in or have recently traveled to an area with active Zika transmission. CDC recommends testing for pregnant women who may have been exposed to Zika, whether or not they have symptoms. This material includes sample scripts to guide discussions with your patients about the complexity of Zika testing and the testing process with patients. Because a lot of content is outlined for discussion, make additional information available to support messaging and ensure that patients understand what they are being told. Pregnant women coming in for Zika testing may feel worried or anxious. Support them by providing them with clear and easy to understand information, avoiding technical terms, and expressing empathy by acknowledging their concerns and feelings during pretesting counseling.
