Description - HIV & AIDS by Robert J. Pratt

Revised and updated to reflect the changing focus and instability of the AIDS epidemic, this text focuses on caring for patients with AIDS and HIV-related health problems. Although our knowledge of the underlying science and pathology driving this epidemic has increased, there is still no biomedical "cure" for this disease. The need for nurses to care is as urgent now as when the disease first appeared.;Core chapters of the book have been completely rewritten, including the evolution of the pandemic, pathways of destruction in HIV disease, the management of strategic nursing care, and nursing issues related to antiretroviral therapy. Three new chapters cover the counselling role of nurses, supporting adherence to therapy and accessing information on the Web.
