  1. Whose health is it ? The views of injecting drug users with HIV infection and their professional carers.

    Article - En anglais

    The views about autonomy in medical treatment of people with HIV infection (who had acquired it via the injection of drugs) and their professional carers were investigated using a standardized self-report instrument.

    Forty-two patients and 61 staff were entered in the study.

    Patients and staff reported strong endorsement of patient autonomy, but there were important differences between groups.

    Staff as a group reported higher preference for patients'involvement in decision-making than the patients themselves, while the opposite was true for information-seeking, where patients wanted more information than staff had anticipated.

    The practical implications of the findings are discussed.
