Negative Physician Attitudes Toward HIV Infected IV Drug Users
Lin Ding, Ph.D., of Harvard Medical School, Boston, and colleagues surveyed a representative sample of 2,864 HIV-infected patients and their physicians to determine if negative attitudes toward HIV-infected injection drug users affected the patient's exposure to highly active antiretroviral therapy, reported problems, satisfaction with care, unmet needs, or perceived access to care.

How opposite sex perceive the sense of humour differently
That sought-after trait in a mate -- "good sense of humour" -- is more complex than originally thought. In fact, men and women define it differently. Eric Bressler, a graduate student at McMaster University who is studying the role of humour in personal attraction, discovered in a survey of 150 students that to a woman, "sense of humour" means someone who makes her laugh; to a man, a sense of humour means someone who appreciates his jokes. "There's a difference between producers (those who make you laugh) and receptors (those who laugh when someone cracks a joke)," said Bressler. "Women choose men who produce humour 62 per cent of the time; conversely, men choose women who appreciate their humour 65 per cent of the time."

Physicians remain overwhelmingly negative in communicating a diagnosis of Down syndrome in newborn infants
A survey of mothers in the January issue of Pediatrics found that physicians remain overwhelmingly negative in communicating a diagnosis of Down syndrome in newborn infants. Mothers reported that the majority of physicians were uninformed about the positive potential for children with Down syndrome, and rarely provided an adequate, up-to-date description of the children, printed information, or telephone numbers of other parents. By nearly all ratings -- including explaining Down syndrome, the timing and setting of the news, and the language that was used -- physicians fell far short of making the birth a positive experience.

Discrimination possibly linked to increased levels of mental disorder
A new survey has found high levels of discrimination against gay men, lesbians and bisexual men and women. Many of those discriminated against attributed it to their sexuality. This was the first large, UK-based comprehensive survey of psychological well-being amongst these groups. Published in the December issue of the British Journal of Psychiatry, the study suggested that experiences of discrimination appear to be linked with higher rates of mental disorder.

Psychiatrists have more positive attitude towards mentally ill
Psychiatrists' attitudes are substantially more favourable towards people with mental illness than those of the general population, a new survey published in the November issue of the Psychiatric Bulletin has found.
This was particularly true for schizophrenia, where psychiatrists believe that the risk of dangerousness was overemphasised.

'YOU DON'T BRING ME FLOWERS ANY MORE'
A survey of psychiatric and non-psychiatric in-patients, published in the October issue of the Psychiatric Bulletin, has found that the stigma of mental illness is reflected in the secrecy surrounding disclosure of hospital admission, and the relative lack of tokens of support.
