LIGHT model: an effective intervention model to change high-risk AIDS behaviors among hard-to-reach urban drug users.
Two thousand thirty-three hospital emergency room (ER) patients who were current, active injecting drug users (IDUs) were voluntary participants in a pretest, posttest research project which utilized a nursing model, the Personalized Nursing LIGHT Model, as a counseling approach to decrease high-risk AIDS behaviors.
The LIGHT Model works by directly improving well-being and thereby indirectly decreasing high-risk behaviors associated with AIDS.
Addicts from an urban ER in each of three cities (Detroit, Michigan; Brooklyn, New York; and Baltirnore, Maryland) were treated with teams consisting of nurses and indigenous outreach workers.
