Facilitator report: Bloodborne pathogens exposure among health care workers

Research output: Contribution to journalReview articlepeer-review

Abstract

Several psychosocial and organizational factors have been identified as important correlates of compliance with safe work practices among health care workers. In particular, compliance with 'universal precautions'-a set of work practices which were designed to minimize exposure to bloodborne pathogens- has been found to be associated with several potentially modifiable factors. The development of interventional strategies designed specifically to target these factors (e.g., HIV/AIDS attitudes, safety climate) are important objectives in the overall risk management approach to occupational exposure to bloodborne pathogens.
