Nursing a 'Plague': HIV & AIDS Care, 1981–1996

Nursing a 'Plague': HIV & AIDS Care, 1981–1996

21st November 2017 @ 05:00pm

In response to the escalating AIDS crisis in the mid-1980s, special wards were created to care for people with HIV & AIDS. Nurses were responsible for providing much of this pioneering care, yet there is almost nothing written on the nursing work that was done caring for these people.

In this special evening diversity event, historian and nurse Dr Tommy Dickinson discusses some of the findings of an ongoing study that is investigating a hitherto neglected area of nursing history by looking in detail at United Kingdom (UK) nurses’ perspectives on providing care to people with HIV & AIDS.
