Título Knowledge and attitude of health care workers about AIDS and HIV infection before and after distribution of an education booklet
Información bibliográfica Spring 1990, Vol.40, No.1, p.15-18. 24 ref.
Resumen Hospital workers (509) in a health authority were surveyed, and asked if they were in contact with HIV positive or AIDS patients, about their perception of risk and their knowledge about attitudes towards HIV and AIDS problems at work. Following the first survey, an information booklet was distributed to all health authority staff and after distribution, 232 staff were surveyed again. In this group (the follow-up group), there was a reduction in perceived risk, and improvement in the level of knowledge and in attitudes, and a reduction in the desire for further information. The group who initially had the least level of knowledge and most unfavourable attitudes (non-clinical workers) were the group who improved most.
