Usefulness of Peer Education for People Living with HIV or AIDS to Manage Uncertainty and Cope With Illness
This research involves a qualitative analysis of a one-on-one peer education program. A constant comparative technique will be used to analyze the responses of 20 individuals that recently completed an HIV Uncertainty Management Education course in a clinical setting at a major university hospital in a midwestern city. A person living with HIV (i.e., a peer educator) will teach the course. The study will analyze how effective a particular one-on-one peer education program is in helping individuals living with HIV or AIDS cope with their illness; to determine to what extent intervention programs help people living with HIV or AIDS; and to analyze advantages and disadvantages to participating in one-on-one peer education programs-thereby guiding future programming.
