Willingness of Health-Professions Students to Treat Patients with AIDS.
Currey, Charles J.; And Others
Academic Medicine, v65 n7 p472-74 Jul 1990
This 1988-89 survey of 319 students in the medical, dental, nursing, and allied health-care professions revealed that over one-third had reservations about treating AIDS (Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome) patients. Unwillingness to treat AIDS patients was strongly associated with homophobic attitudes. Education should emphasize methods for the prevention of infection. (Author/MLW)
