Contributing factors for Human Papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine acceptance among African American young adults by Jennifer Anne Sledge( )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

There is an epidemic of sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) in the United States. Populations most affected by STDs are young adults, particularly those living in a high risk environment such as a college or university. African American's are disproportionately at risk for STD's. One of the most prevalent STD's on college campuses today is the Human Papillomavirus (HPV). Genital HPV is a sexually transmitted disease which is primarily known for causing genital warts and cervical cancer. In 2007, the first vaccine to prevent HPV was approved. The purpose of this study was to investigate the contributing factors for HPV vaccine acceptance among African American young adults. The Health Belief Model (HBM) served as the theoretical framework to guide this study. Findings revealed that among African American young adults, perceived susceptibility to HPV, perceived benefits of HPV and perceived barriers to HPV vaccination were found to be significant factors for HPV vaccination intention. Findings further reveal a significant difference in knowledge of HPV between men and women, with women showing higher knowledge scores. Additionally, African American young adults with higher traditional masculinity ideology were less likely to accept the HPV vaccine. Findings add to the current state of the science regarding HPV knowledge and contributing factors for HPV vaccine acceptance among African American young adults
A study of intergroup contact theory : using storytelling to increase awareness of lesbian and gay older adults in long-term care settings by Michael D Pelts( )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Among the growing aging population are a large number of people who identify as lesbian or gay (LG). Due to societal imposed discrimination and stigmatization, LG older adults fear and prolong accessing long-term care. Less likely to be partnered, married or to have children and disparities in health that may result in increased health needs suggest older LG adults may be vulnerable and at high risk for neglect and being underserved. Even though in greater need, LG older adults avoid long-term care (LTC) services in fear of stigmatization and discrimination. The development of interventions that increase awareness of LG older adults among LTC staff is a first step in addressing this problem. Guided by intergroup contact theory, this mixed-method study explored the influence of storytelling on LTC staff attitudes towards older LG adults. Results show that storytelling had a significant and positive impact on LTC staff attitudes toward LG. The differences between male and female participant’s attitudes’ toward LG were not statistically significant. Religiosity was not a scientifically statistically significant predictor of negative attitudes toward LG but had clinical significance. Implications for social work are identified
Information and communication technology use, social support, and life satisfaction among Korean immigrant elders by Jung Sim Jun( )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This cross-sectional study aimed to explore 1) ICT use (email, smart phone, internet, and social networking sites), 2) differences in ICT use between younger (age 60-70) and older (71+) groups, 3) relationship between ICT use and social support, and 4) relationship between ICT use and life satisfaction among KIEs. By utilizing face-to-face interview and purposive sampling methods, 150 community dwelling KIEs in California, Missouri, and Kansas were surveyed. Descriptive statistics, bivariate analyses (t-test and correlation matrix), and hierarchical multiple regression were employed to address four research questions and test three hypotheses. The findings indicated that KIEs with higher education and higher income utilized ICT more than their counterparts. Younger KIEs utilized ICT significantly more than older KIEs. Smart phone and social networking site (SNS) use were significantly associated to social support and SNS use was a significant indicator to life satisfaction among KIEs. The findings provide important insights for social work practitioners, researchers, or health care providers to educate or support KIEs for improving social support system and psychological health/well-being by developing technology supported psychosocial interventions
Engagement of geographically diverse Head Start families by Amanda M Keys( )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This study examined the differences in family engagement in geographically diverse Head Start families using the new Parent, Family and Community Engagement (PFCE) Framework developed by the Office of Head Start. Participants included 419 urban and rural parents from the Midwest. All participants were surveyed using the Family Member Well-Being Index (FMWB), the Family Coping Coherence Index (FCCI), and the Parent and School Survey (PASS). There was one independent variable, geographic location, and seven dependent variables based upon the PFCE Framework's family engagement outcomes. Results indicated differences between two of the seven PFCE Framework's family engagement outcomes: families as lifelong educators and families as advocates and leaders. In addition, using the PASS instrument an overall difference in family engagement was found in rural and urban Head Start parents

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Abstract : This exploratory qualitative study examined staff perceptions of social work student contributions to client services, family and client communication, and staff workload in an independent living setting for older adults. Ten employees who had contact with the students, clients, and family were interviewed using a semistructured interview method. The findings suggest a positive response to the presence of social work students in the enhancement of home healthcare and in this independent living environment. In particular, their contributions were viewed as helpful in client quality of life, quality of care, communication with clients and families, and work performance
