Abstract

OBJECTIVES: To evaluate feasibility of and to validate a rating scale for two educational programs that use standardized patient-instructors (SPIs) in the office setting to improve physicians' HIV risk communication skills. DESIGN:Pilot randomized trial of announced and unannounced SPIs. PARTICIPANTS/SETTINGS: Twenty four primary care physicians in the Rochester, NY, area. MEASUREMENTS: The Rochester HIV Interview Rating Scale (RHIRS), HIV test ordering, physician satisfaction questionnaire. RESULTS:Physicians found theintervention useful, and predicted a positive effect on their future HIV-related communication. HIV test ordering and RHIRS scores increased similarly in both intervention groups. Announced SPI visits were more convenient and preferred by physicians. Cost for each SPI visit was $75. CONCLUSIONS: A brief office-based intervention using SPIs was feasible, well-accepted, convenient, and inexpensive. Announced SPIs were preferred to unannounced SPIs. Pilot results suggesting improvement in HIV-related communication should be confirmed in a larger randomized trial.
