Abstract:
Voices and Visions of Persons Living With HIV/AIDS
Conference Sponsor:Sigma Theta Tau International Gamma Lambda Chapter
Conference Year:1998
Author:Jones, Sande, PhD
P.I. Institution Name:Florida International University
Title:Assistant Professor
Objective:A consortium consisting of nine nurse researchers and a research/statistical consultant from academe and 5 medical centers participated in a triangulated study in an attempt to better understand the experience of persons with HIV/AIDS. The purpose of the study was to increase understanding of the experiences of persons with HIV/AIDS as they cope with living, rather than dying with the disease



Design:Triangulated



Population, Sample, Setting, Years: Total of 75 HIV persons, drawn from hospitals and community-based support centers from 1996-1997



Concept or Variables Studied Together:The experience of HIV/AIDS persons coping with living



Methods: Face-to-face interview surveys were done with 50 hospital patients; three focus groups were conducted with 20 women; and in-depth phenomenological interviews were done with 5 participants



Findings:Seven themes emerged from a synthesis of analyses:touch/being cared for, who's in charge; comfort/pain, anger, professional competence, gender/culture differences, and getting on with life.



Conclusions: The voices and visions of persons with HIV/AIDS were found to eloquently express feelings of anger and frustration, isolation, and perceived inadequacies of health care providers, resources, and the health care system.



Implications:The need to cope and live life fully was powerfully expressed by the participants. Female participants were angry about perceived inadequacies in the health care system, based on gender and cultural differences.
