Manila, Philippines, WHO, Regional Office for the Western Pacific, 1993. vi, 44 p. (HIV / AIDS Reference Library for Nurses Vol. 6)The current challenge represented by the AIDS epidemic demands the involvement and continued commitment of nurses. Nursing services are required in the areas of human resources management, community development, and the provision of health and social services. This booklet, prepared by the World Health Organization's Western Pacific Region, outlines curricula that will ensure nurses have the basic knowledge, skills, and attitudes they need to promote the prevention of HIV infection and provide clinical care to AIDS patients. The first section covers the integration of HIV/AIDS content into the basic nursing curriculum and presents a competency-based approach to curriculum development. The second section presents curriculum guidelines for formal education after the basic program, while the third suggests guidelines for planning continuing education through workshops and seminars. This is the sixth in a series of booklets that comprise the HIV/AIDS Reference Library for Nurses.
