DANTAS, Mariana de Sousa; ABRAO, Fátima Maria da Silva; FREITAS, Clara Maria Silvestre Monteiro de  e  OLIVEIRA, Denize Cristina de. Social representations of HIV/AIDS among healthcare professionals in benchmark services. Rev. Gaúcha Enferm. [online]. 2014, vol.35, n.4, pp.94-100. ISSN 1983-1447.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/1983-1447.2014.04.45860.

This study was based on exploratory research and a qualitative approach within the framework of the Social Representations Theory. It aims to capture the social representations of healthcare providers in relation to HIV/AIDS by describing their structure. The Free Evocations technique was applied on 86 professionals of HIV/AIDS benchmark services in Recife, Pernambuco, Brazil, from 2011 to 2013. Analysis using EVOC 2005 software showed that the possible central core is prejudice in a negative attitude dimension; in the contrast zone, chronic disease translates living with the disease. In the first periphery, treatment and disease in a clinical/biometric conception; in the second periphery, death has a imagistic and negative nature. Positive and negative elements were observed, allowing healthcare personnel to construct meaning attributed to the phenomenon and reflect on their practices.
