  1. Respiratory care practitioners'attitudes toward patients with AIDS.

    Article - En anglais


    To assess attitudes of respiratory care practitioners about AIDS and patients with AIDS.


    A questionnaire that explored attitudes about AIDS was disseminated throughout southern New jersey.

    Identity of individual responders was protected carefully.


    One hundred fifty-nine responses were received.

    The majority of responders favored identification of patients with AIDS, segregation of those patients into AIDS wards, and then avoidance of the AIDS wards.

    There was some bias against patients with known high-risk behaviors (especially drug abuse), but once a patient had AIDS the fear of getting AIDS was the only factor that correlated (p=0.001) with the desire to avoid AIDS patients.
