Changing Stigmatizing Attitudes: HIV and Contact Tracing Virtual Patient Simulation

Join Elsevier’s Shadow Health experts as they discuss their recent study and implications on HIV contract tracing in virtual patient simulation. Research indicates training regarding HIV stigma lowers stigmatizing attitudes in healthcare providers. This pilot study assessed the effect of a virtual patient simulation focused on providing care for a Vietnamese-American man diagnosed with HIV and conducting subsequent contact tracing, on the attitudes, beliefs, and behaviors of nursing students in the formative junior year.
