AIDS Knowledge and Attitudes of Health Professionals. An Annotated Bibliography.
Dowd, Steven B.
This bibliography presents, in reverse chronological order, the results of 22 articles from professional journals discussing the knowledge and attitudes found in various groups of health professionals regarding acquired immune deficiency syndrome (AIDS), Human Immunodeficiency Virus, and patients with AIDS. This review covers a 5-year retrospective search of the literature. The findings of most of the studies are that AIDS patients are feared by many health professionals, including those with many years of education, such as physicians and medical school faculty. Every article cited calls for more education--entry-level and continuing. Some call for education that is primarily attitudinal/affective; some for knowledge-based education; most call for more of both types of education. (KC)
