Co-Authors:W.M. Woith, Virginia S. Cleland, RN/ANF Scholar; Postdoctoral Fellow on the Training in Biobehavioral Nursing Research Grant T32 NR07075 NINR/NIH; Mennonite College of Nursing at Illinois State University, Normal, IL; J.L. Larson, Acute, Critical and Long
Purpose: The prevalence of tuberculosis (TB) is higher in Russian health care workers (HCW) employed in TB care facilities than in other settings. The purpose of the research in progress, being conducted in September and October 2008, is to identify current levels of knowledge of TB and tuberculosis infection control (IC), as well as supports, barriers, and motivators to implementation of IC measures, among TB HCW in Russia. The long term goal of this line of research is to reduce nosocomial infection rates among TB HCW in Russia through education and behavior change. Theoretical/conceptual framework: This study uses a community participatory design and is built on a framework of two behavioral change models all within the cultural, social, and developmental contexts of post-Soviet Russia and the Russian health care system. Subjects: A convenience sample of 100 HCW in 5 TB facilities will be used to generate 12 focus groups (FG). Each group will consist of 6-10 participants. Methods: Methodology was developed by a community project team consisting of members of the Russian health care community. Focus groups will be homogeneous, consisting of either physicians, nurses, laboratorians, or other workers. Participants will complete a Knowledge Assessment Questionnaire (KAQ) and demographic survey prior to discussing the tuberculosis disease process and infection control measures to prevent transmission. Rapid ethnographic assessment methods, using a facilitator and two transcribers, will guide collection of qualitative data. Transcribers will take notes on verbal and nonverbal responses of participants; notes will be summarized immediately following each session and translated into English. The research team will meet after each FG to compile notes. Data collection will be conducted in Saint Petersburg and Vladimir Oblast in fall of 2008. Anticipated Method of Analysis: The KAQ will be analyzed using descriptive statistics. Hierarchical data coding and analysis will be conducted on content from focus groups. Analysis will be conducted by the PI and results shared with the Community Project Team and participating institutions. Acknowledgements: Funded by grants from the American Nurses Foundation, Illinois State University, and NINR/NIH T32 NR07075.
