  1. HIV diagnosis rituals and identity narratives.

    Article - En anglais

    Using the constitutive view of health communication as a framework, this essay explores the construction of HIV diagnoses in narratives about physician/patient interactions.

    Narrative analysis reveals the life-changing impact of HIV diagnosis and the incongruence of the routine ways in which most diagnoses are handled.

    It also highlights the importance of HIV-positive communities in the construction of HIV-positive identities.

    These analyses suggest a review of how all diagnoses are delivered, and a need for further exploration of the role of supportive communities in construction of identity.
