HIV POSITIVE  Caretakers
American College of Physicians Publishes Guide For Caregivers Of AIDS Patients

Physicians now have comprehensive guidelines to offer the non-professional who provides home care to individuals with HIV infection or AIDS, according to a press release from the American College of Physicians (ACP).

The College has published a problem-solving reference entitled the "Home Care Guide for HIV and AIDS," which "...provides step-by-step instructions for managing all aspects of home care for HIV and AIDS." The guide also includes tips on how to work effectively with physicians, nurses and social workers.

The book contains 24 chapters that focus on both the physical and emotional problems associated with HIV infection. Each chapter is broken down into sections that include understanding the problem, when to seek professional assistance and how to get help when it is needed.

A review copy may be obtained by contacting the ACP Books Department at 215-351-2618.
