Abstract

AIDS is not solely a medical issue but also has profound implications for family relationships. This case report using the concepts of family nursing and case management presents the concerns of a family living with AIDS. The data was collected through continuous contacts with a patient during December 1994 to August 1996. This report's findings indicate that the concerns of the family living with AIDS fall into seven categories: The reasons for HIV infection, how to meet the patient's sexual needs, suffering during health care seeking, the effectiveness and side-effects of anti-viral drugs, home care skills, the light of hope, death issues. Professional nurses should provide care to both the AIDS patient and the family members. Using social resources and cooperating with other health professionals can promote the quality of life for families living with AIDS.
