We just heard the statistics that something like
9 cities across the United States—something like 10-15% of all new
infections are people getting infected with drug resistant virus. So the
people that are giving the virus to these people already know they’re
infected and they’re already taking medications. So these are our patients
that we teach and instruct on a daily basis who are going out and infecting
other patients. In some regards, I think it’s like almost hopeless to try
to change people’s sexual behavior, I shouldn’t say that but, you know,
that’s basically what my feeling is.
Patients in clinics with high provider fatalism
were less likely to have prevention counseling in the previous 6 months
than patients in clinics with low provider fatalism (OR = 0.45, 95% CI:
0.26, 0.78, p < .01).
