Objective: The purpose of this descriptive, correlational study was to examine the relationship between patient’s perception of caring by their health care provider and demographic characteristics, health status and adherence to a therapeutic regimen in persons with HIV/AIDS. Design/Sample: A secondary data analysis was conducted on a convenience sample of 707 non-hospitalized persons receiving health care services for HIV/AIDS who were recruited from seven U.S. sites from 1998 to 1999. All measures were self-reported. Concept/Variables Studied: Patient perception of caring by the health care provider, the dependent variable, was measured by the newly developed Caring by Health Care Provider (CHCP) Scale. Adherence to therapeutic regimen included the three measures of “medication adherence: “follows provider advice”, and “adherence to scheduled appointments:. Health status was measured by the Medical Outcome Study Short Form 36 (MOS SF-36), Living with HIV scale, reported CD4 count, and length of time known to be HIV-positive. Data related to age, gender, ethnicity, education, and injection drug use were collected on a demographic questionnaire. Methods: Comparison between and among groups on the dependent variable of perceived caring will be conducted using t-test and analysis of variance (ANOVA). The alpha of significance will be set at .0125. Two step-wise multiple regressions will be calculated with perceived caring as the dependent variable and quality of life scores as the predictor variables. The relationship between perceived caring and adherence measures will be examined with Pearson correlations for “medication adherence” and “follows provider advice” (continuous variables) and with a t-test for “adherence to scheduled appointments” (dichotomous variable). Implications: If persons with HIV/AIDS perceive their health care provider as a “caring” professional, potential adherence to the therapeutic regimen may be cultivated.
