Abstract: Presents guidelines prepared to assist nurses who face the challenge of caring for HIV-infected persons and their families. Developed by the World Health Organization in collaboration with the International Council of Nurses, the book provides a clear and explicit guide to the precautions needed to prevent the transmission of HIV in health care settings. In view of the major role that nurses are asked to play in caring, counselling, and educating, the book gives particular attention to the special skills needed to care for patients and help them and their families cope throughout the different phases of disease. The most extensive chapter is devoted to a step-by-step explanation of the professional nursing skills needed to provide optimal nursing care, to prevent HIV transmission in the hospital, clinic, or community setting, and to protect the health of nurses and other health care providers. Specific topics range from the importance of confidentiality in counselling to the sensitive question of whether children infected with HIV should be immunized. Readers will also find guidance on the universal precautions to follow in relation to blood and other body fluids, injections and skin-piercing, laboratory specimens, invasive procedures, laundry, blood spills, and the disposal of infected wastes
