Responding to a challenge : nursing care and AIDS.
- Those providing nursing services have been at the forefront in responding to the AIDS epidemic.
This paper poses the question as to what extent AIDS work makes unique demands of nursing staff.
It explores the implications of AIDS-related nursing work and considers these within the broader context of the role of nurses and their work environment.
Although intense, many of the demands of AIDS-related work are also features of nursing in other contexts.
There is thus potential to draw on already formulated training responses and to contribute significantly to ongoing debates about nursing and nurse education.
