  1. Mental health and substance abuse staff: HIV/AIDS knowledge and attitudes.

    Article - En anglais

    Mental health and substance abuse treatment staff completed a set of measures assessing their attitudes, knowledge, and beliefs concerning AIDS.

    Results indicated that while most staff were aware of basic information about the disease, approximately one-third were not aware of the neuropsychological and psycho-behavioural concomitants of the disorder.

    Those surveyed were aware of the main transmission routes, but overgeneralized their concern to casual contact.

    Most staff indicated willingness to work with HIV-infected individuals, although 29% stated they would try to avoid working with them.

    Interestingly, mental health staff expressed greater hesitancy than substance abuse staff.
