Abstract:

An interactive sexually transmitted infection (STI) education tool was developed to assist a non-profit agency, who for the purpose of this paper will be referred to as CCS, in meeting their annual organizational goals including: empowerment, further knowledge of the internal functionality of the female body, and decrease sexually transmitted infection (STI), consecutive pregnancies, and delayed overall risky sexual behaviors.  The use of the tested and validated I Sing instrument as a pre and posttest instrument positively promoted the use of the interactive STI educational tool that the female adolescents can interact with the educator all at one time to improve their STI knowledge and decrease risky behaviors.  The findings of this project included 100% adolescent satisfaction and 100% complete implementation of the project into the CCS organization so the organization could continue to educate adolescents in the same way regarding STI.  This submission discusses the project development, intervention, stakeholders, evaluation, and change management process and how the change will be maintained long term in order to decrease risky sexual behaviors in adolescents.

Description:
Developing an adolescent sexually transmitted infection (STI) education process was the core focus of this pilot project. To do this appropriately three project objectives were focused on: identifying a model of care to decrease risky sexual behaviors, demonstrate effectiveness of adolescent participation in STI education, and evaluating the success of the implementation of an adolescent STI education.
