Reluctance amongst nurses and doctors to care for and treat patients with HIV/AIDS.
A survey was carried out, using a questionnaire and semi-structured interviews, to examine why nurses and doctors might be reluctant to care for patients with HIV/AIDS.
The findings provided four main themes :
Perceptions about sexual promiscuity ; blaming certain patients with HIV/AIDS ; belief in the right to refuse to provide care ; and discriminatory care.
The paper concludes by acknowledging the limitations of the study and examining the implications of the findings for clinical practice.
