Abstract

The purpose of the study was to understand AIDS knowledge (K) and willingness to seek knowledge or to join AIDS-related events (W(k)) of the dietitians in the AIDS-appointed hospitals in Taiwan. In 20 hospitals, 152 dietitians served as the sample. A total of 133 completed the questionnaire. Only 5 (3.8%) were males. Dietitians were highly-educated, 87.9% owned bachelor's or higher. Mean duration of work was 8.5 ± 6.1 years. Ninety-one dietitians (68.4%) were clinical dietitians. The mean score-obtaining rates of K and W(k) were 62% and 70%, respectively. The major source of dietitians' K was from general and professional books or journals. Seventy-nine percent of dietitians were willing to participate in in-hospital AIDS education and training program, 72% to seek professional K on AIDS and nutrition, and 71% to join off-site AIDS-controled teams. Dietitians' religion and education level were related to K when analyzed with general linear model (GLM) with least square means (LSM); Only religion had relationship with W(k) according to chi-square tests. However, in addition to religion, gender and clinical experience also had relationships with W(k) when analyzed with GLM with LSM. Education level contributed 8.7% of K covariation while AIDS attitude, religion and clinical experience contributed 16.8% of W(k) covariation. Dietitians' K and W(k) were not correlated.
