Sexually Transmitted Diseases’ Impact on Population

Table of Contents

Introduction

The study focuses on the impact of the Sexually Transmitted Diseases (STD) on the population. Two scholarly articles that provide the analysis of the STD’s impact on people’s health and their awareness of the dangers of these diseases are chosen for this study. The first survey was conducted in Bangladesh to determine whether Bangladeshi women are aware of the risks of unprotected sex or not. The second survey was conducted in the USA among sexual minority women.

Intervention

For my study, I plan to recruit fifty patients in the local hospital to participate in it. The nurse practitioners who will employ my intervention will be located in the special room at the hospital where all the chosen patients will be gathered. To involve the patients in my study, I will tell them about my research, ask them basic questions on their opinion about the dangerousness of the STDs, show them the informed consent form, and guarantee the confidentiality and anonymity of my research.

In my research, the process of intervention will consist of two stages. At the first stage, the chosen participants will be provided with information about the dangerousness of the STDs. For this purpose, different brochures will be used. In the second stage, the participants will watch a video about the STDs. After that, the participants will provide their opinion on the information on the brochures and the video. For this purpose, a special questionnaire will be used (Park, 2013).

Evaluation Tools

New evaluation tools are frequently being developed by different researchers. The reason for this is that there are new studies that require special evaluation tools that do not exist yet. Nowadays, many reliable and valid evaluation tools are available in nursing practice. In my research, I will use the already existing evaluation tools, as they have proved their validity and are appropriate for my study. Since the type of my research is mixed methods, the evaluation tools peculiar to both qualitative and quantitative research will be used. Thus, the most effective tools for my study which will help determine the change of patients’ attitudes to the STDs are different kinds of surveys and interviews (Oermann & Gaberson, 2016).

Pre- and Posttests

The chosen evaluation methods, that is the surveys and the interviews will be conducted in three stages. The first stage will be before the intervention, the second stage – right after the intervention to see how the provided intervention changes patients’ opinion on the matter on the short-term basis, and the third stage – in three months after the intervention to see the efficaciousness of the provided intervention on the long-term basis (Zeng et al., 2015).

Sampling Methods

Many existing sampling methods such as random, stratified, purposive, snowball, and systematic are appropriate for my research and can be used in it. However, in my opinion, stratified, random, and snowball sampling methods are the most effective strategies for my study. Thus, while the use of stratified and random sampling methods will help determine the percentage of patients who have changed their attitude to the STDs and changed their life to avoid them, the use of the snowball sampling method will help involve more people in my study (Zeng et al., 2015).

Ethics

As for the ethics of the study, I will assure all the participants of its confidentiality and anonymity before they sign the informed consent form. When giving such promises, it is crucial to be objective and not to demonstrate any bias on my side. Additionally, I must provide the participants with the right to withdraw their personal information from the study at any stage (Park, 2013).

Conclusion

In conclusion, it can be mentioned that the most appropriate evaluation tools for my mixed methods research are surveys and interviews, and the most appropriate sampling methods are stratified, random, and snowball. When conducting my research, I must assure the participants of its anonymity and confidentiality to make their answers more honest, as their answers will improve the public knowledge, particularly their knowledge about the risks of the STDs.
