HIV-infected health care professionals : public opinion about testing, disclosing, and switching.
We wanted to know what the public believes about the risks of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) transmission in health care settings, and what opinions the public holds regarding HIV-infected health care professionals.
We also wanted to uncover the correlates and predictors of those opinions.
A telephone survey of a nationwide random probability sample of adults was conducted in summer 199 1. Thirteen hundred fifty adults completed the survey.
The response rate was approximately 63%. We assessed (1) public opinion about whether HIV-infected physicians, surgeons, and dentists should quit working, and (2) the public's self-reported intention to remain in the care of an HIV-infected professional or to swith to another provider.
