Synopsis:
The practice of HIV/AIDS nursing encompasses a continuum of care from prevention through diagnosis and treatment to end-of-life/palliative care of the person living with HIV/AIDS. This book articulates the essentials of this nursing specialty, its activities and accountabilities at all practice levels and settings. The standards themselves - six for nursing practice and nine for professional performance - are those by which all HIV/AIDS nurses practice. These, and each standard's set of measurement criteria, reflect the values and priorities of this practice specialty. The book's detailed discussion of the scope of practice - it's characteristics, development, education and training, practice environments and settings, special populations and its general and specialized practice roles lends a broad context for better understanding using these standards. While this book is primarily for practicing nurses, it is also an essential resource for others in related healthcare work, including other care providers, researchers and scholars, and those involved in funding, legal, policy and regulatory activities.
