Rosengren, Kenneth J.; Zoltoski, Rebecca K.
Optometric Education, v25 n3 p74-81 Spr 2000
Surveyed entering optometry students (n=404) and again during their fourth year (n=314) for knowledge about and attitudes toward HIV/AIDS. Analysis indicated significant improvement from pre- to post-test for general HIV/AIDS knowledge and optometric-specific HIV/AIDS knowledge and attitudes. For universal precautions implementation, no change in overall score was noted, although some individual procedure scores improved significantly. (Author/DB)
