Abstract

Patients with HIV often present to services with complex and challenging psychosocial issues. As nurses, we are often required to discuss the sexual disclosure of HIV, testing of children/sexual partners, issues around sexuality, risky sexual behaviour, harm reduction and the onward transmission of HIV. When working with others in a professional capacity, it is important that we are clear about our own personal beliefs, values and needs. Self-awareness is a process that enables nurses to learn more about their personal beliefs and value and is considered an important tool during the development of therapeutic relationships with patients.
