Dominican Adolescent Study 2 Dominican Adolescents 1

Abstract

The purpose of paper is to provide a final report of a research practicuum experience

on a project, A Comparison of Sexual Risk Behaviors of Dominican Adolescents in

Their Homeland and in the United States. An overview of the study is provided

including time frame and funding sources. A critique of the study is presented

including (a) examination of strengths and weaknesses of the project, (b)

identification of enablers and barriers to implementation of the project, (c) discussion

of the outcomes expected from the project, and (d) evaluation of the overall

contribution of the project to nursing and health care. Specific examples and

rationale are offered. Finally, an evaluation of the role of the student research

assistant in relationship to the research project is presented.

Participant Observation 2 Dominican Adolescents 1

Abstract

The purpose of paper is to describe a participant observation experience at a Harley Davidson motorcycle festival. This analysis will include (a) a description of the event, (b) a discussion of how the observer felt "different" from and "connected" to the group during the experience, and (c) an identification of cultural values and beliefs underlying the event. Finally, implications of these values and beliefs for the provision of health care services for this population will be addressed.

Dominican Adolescents 2 Dominican Adolescents 1

Abstract

Objectives: Dominican adolescents represent a rapidly growing population being

infected with HIV. The purpose of this paper is to compare the sexual risk

behaviors of adolescents in the D.R. and their Dominican counterparts in the U.S.

Methods: This secondary analysis was based on data from a larger study on risk

behaviors, self esteem, and social influences of Dominican adolescents. The

parent study used a cross-sectional, comparative design with data collection sites

in Las Matas, D.R. and Boston, U.S. Data on sexual risk behaviors were

collected using the 99-item 1999 Youth Risk Behavior Survey (YRBS). Survey

data were collected from a convenience sample of 390 Dominican adolescents,

including 192 adolescents in the D.R. and 198 adolescents in the U.S.

Results: Although there were few differences between the two subsamples with

respect to sexual risk behaviors, differences in condom use and condom

accessibility as well as sources of HIV education were found.

Conclusions: Comparative and cross-cultural data are needed to further explain

observed differences in HIV infection rates, predict future trends in transmission,

and identify prevention and health educational needs unique to particular

populations and settings.


Slide9 l.jpg

Series Dominican Adolescents 1 (APA, 2001, pp. 115-117, 292)

  • for series within a paragraph or sentence, use (a), (b), (c), and (d)

    Example: Comprehensive AIDS care includes attention to (a) physical needs, (b) psychosocial concerns, and (c) social circumstances.

  • for series of separate sentences or paragraphs, use indented Arabic numeral followed by a period.

    Example: To provide comprehensive AIDS care, the following steps must be taken:

    1. The nurse conducts a comprehensive assessment.

    2. The nurse develops a plan of care in collaboration with the patient and his/her family.

    3. The nurse evaluates the outcomes of care on an ongoing basis.


Slide10 l.jpg

Quotations Dominican Adolescents 1 (A.P.A., pp. 117-118, 292-293)

  • short quotes (i.e., fewer than 40 words) are incorporated into text and enclosed with quotation marks

    Example: According to Patsdaughter (2004), “The HIV/AIDS epidemic has . . . reawakened our collective creativity” (p. 43).

  • long quotes (i.e., more than 40 words) are displayed in an indented double-spaced block with no quotation marks

    Example: Patsdaughter, Dyer, and Riley-Eddins (2004) noted:

    Nursing and health care education, practice, and

    research are occurring within the context of

    rapidly changing demographics and global

    migration, a shift in health and illness patterns,

    and an unstable economic environment with

    limited resources. . . . The work of nursing and health care

    professionals must now be culturally and socially responsive

    and address contemporary calls to action. (p. 5)

  • quotes within quotes are enclosed in a single quotation mark (“ ‘ ‘ ”)


Slide11 l.jpg

  • Always give page numbers for direct quotes. Plagarism is a violation of professional ethics (APA, 2001, pp. 349-350) and may result in failing a course or expulsion from the university!

  • Cite authors but do not give page numbers for ideas or materials that are paraphrased.

    Examples:

    Patsdaughter, O’Connor, Grindel, Taveira, and Mancusi (2001) argued that HIV counseling and testing services should link both seropositive and seronegative clients to care.

    or

    HIV counseling and testing services should link both seropositive and seronegative clients to care (Patsdaughter, O’Connor, Grindel, Taveira, & Mancusi, 2001)


Slide12 l.jpg

Multiple Authors violation of professional ethics (APA, 2001, pp. 349-350) and may result in failing a course or expulsion from the university!

  • when a work has two authors, always cite both

  • when a work has three to five authors, cite all the first time; in subsequent citations, cite first author and "et al.“

    Example:

    Dyer, Patsdaughter, McGuinness, O’Connor, and DeSantis (2004) found . . .

    It has been documented that the patient-provider relationship is critical for disenfranchised persons with HIV/AIDS (Dyer et al., 2004)

  • when a work has six or more authors, only cite first author and use et al. for first and subsequent citations


Slide13 l.jpg

  • When you've read several sources that support your position, use multiple citations to strengthen your argument. Group in alphabetical (not chronological) order and separate by semicolons.

    Example: Numerous works have addressed the unique issues and challenges in the lives of disenfranchised persons living with HIV/AIDS (Cameron, Patsdaughter, &

    O'Connor, 2000;Dyer et al., 2004; O'Connor,

    Medeiros, DeSantis, Patsdaughter, Casale, & Balram,

    2004; Patsdaughter et al., 2001).

  • When a work has no author, cite the first few words of the title or publication and the year.

    Example: ("AIDS Care," 1995)

  • personal communication is cited in text but not included in references

    Example: (C. A. Patsdaughter, personal communication, May 8, 2006)


Slide14 l.jpg

  • All references cited in text must appear in reference list. use multiple citations to strengthen your argument. Group in alphabetical (not chronological) order and separate by semicolons.

  • All references in reference list must appear in text.

  • References in reference list are alphabetized and double-spaced.

Writing Style (APA, 2001, pp. 31-40) use multiple citations to strengthen your argument. Group in alphabetical (not chronological) order and separate by semicolons.

  • orderly presentation of ideas (an outline may help)

  • smoothness and economy of expression

    scientific writing is different than creative writing;

    in close proximity

    completely unanimous

    summarize briefly

    the reason is because

  • vary sentence and paragraph length

  • avoid run on sentences

  • no paragraphs over one page long
