Abstract:
This purpose of this presentation is to share the findings from a three-phase study conducted over a one-year period in Prince Edward Island. The study explored youth identification of the factors important to facilitate their ability to take control of their sexual health behaviour. Despite the prevention efforts of nurses, youth infection with STIs remains a serious public health problem. Contextual factors external to the individual need greater explication. Youth participation in the design of interventions to prevent STIs needs greater documentation. Four groups of youth (separated by gender) participated in iterative focus groups. Youth identified factors that facilitate or impede their ability to control sexual behaviour and helped develop curriculum materials (i.e. role-plays, interactive games) to prevent STIs. Youth received results before other stakeholders (parents, teachers, nurses). Thematic analysis, complimented by a social and economic inclusion framework illuminated the underlying dynamic in youth culture relevant to sexual health. Conference attendees will develop new insights into factors youth identify to control their sexual health behaviour and how these factors can serve to reconceptualize the formulation and implementation of approaches to prevent STIs. Curriculum resources developed with the input of youth are available for nurses who have a role in prevention.
