Develop a Professional Program for the Prevention/Reduction of Teenage Pregnancies in a Rural Community
An important role of the FNP is to serve your community as a consultant and leader of healthcare policy making and program planning. You live in a small rural town. Over the past 5 years, there has been an increase in teenage pregnancies. The community leaders have asked you to take a leadership role in the the development of a program that will address this issue. You have organized a committee of people representing teachers, nurses, doctors, parents, church leaders, and students. Based on evidence-based research, the class (pretending to be on the committee) discuss research findings on the prevention of teenage pregnancies. (1) What types of research studies have been done on this topic? (2) What are the research findings? (3) How should sex education be addressed in the schools? (4) If a parent asks you to approach the topic of birth control with her teenage daughter or son, how will you address the topic or what methods will you use in your teaching plan?
