Abstract:
Purpose: This study will seek to identify HIV prevention factors of African-American Baptist parents and their adolescent children. The purpose of this study focuses on one of the leading health indicators of Healthy People 2010, which is responsible sexual behavior. Adolescents are at high risk for HIV infection and other sexually transmitted diseases. Further, African-Americans have the highest rate of HIV infection yet represent only 12% of the population. Additionally, overwhelming evidence and scores of scientific studies, demonstrate that well- designed prevention programs can help reduce the number of new HIV infections that occur each day. However, to produce lasting behavior change, prevention programs must take into account parental influence, cultural realities and religious beliefs of the people at greatest risk. The African-American Baptist church has not been well defined as an HIV prevention resource. Although sexual abstinence is grounded in religious beliefs how do African-American Baptist parents effectively discuss postponement or cessation of sexual activity and prevention of STDs with their adolescent children? Specific Aims: The specific aim for this study is to identify needs, barriers, and concerns that African-American Baptist parents and their adolescent children have in discussing HIV prevention, sexually transmitted diseases, and postponement of sexual activity. Framework: The Theory of Reasoned Action (Ajzen & Fishbein, 1980) is the framework for this study. This theory provides a basis for examining relationships between religious beliefs, willingness, and behavioral intents to perform a given behavior based on an individual's attitudes and subjective norm. Methods: The design for this study is qualitative and quantitative with focus group and survey methodology. The participants will be African-American parents (n = 40) and one of their 6th or 7th grade children (n = 40) recruited from two Baptist churches located in Virginia. The focus group sessions will be guided by questions developed by the researcher. Each focus group session will be audio taped and analyzed for recurring themes. The participants will also complete a Parent-Child HIV Risk Reduction Survey which will be analyzed with descriptive statistics, chi-square, t-tests and Pearson correlations tests for relationships in the communication process. The findings of this study will guide the development of a church based HIV intervention program. Results and Conclusions: The results and conclusions of this study are pending. Implications for Nursing Practice: Recommendations for future research will be based upon the findings of this study. The findings from the focus group sessions will also provide the basis for developing a church based HIV intervention program.
