Predicting dentists' perceived occupational risk for HIV infection.
This study posed two questions:
What is the level of perceived occupational risk among American general practice dentists (GPDs)?
What factors influence perception of occupational risk for HIV infection among GPDs?
In data obtained from a national mail survey of 1351 GPDs (response rate, 88%) 31% of American GPDs expressed disagreement with the statement that HIV+individuals can be safely treated in their office settings.
Of the 16 variables entered into a multiple regression equation, 9 variables had a statistically significant influence on dentists' assessment of occupational risk.
