Who cares? Perceptions of the physician-patient relationship among youth with HIV.
The purpose of this study was to assess (a) perceptions of the physician-patient relationship among youth with HIV and (b) the relationship between the perceived physician-patient relationship and disease management variables. Participants were 72 youth with HIV ages 13-24. The Patient Reactions Assessment (PRA) and the Adolescent Patient-Provider Interaction Scale (APPIS) were administered. Results suggest positive perceptions among youth with HIV about their relationship with their physicians. There was a significant correlation between PRA and APPIS scores. However, there were no significant correlations between scores on the PRA and APPIS and demographic or disease management variables.
