The Male Voice: A Qualitative Assessment of Young Men ’s Communication Preferences About HPV and 9vHPV

AbstractIn the U.S. there is an epidemic of sexually transmitted diseases (STIs). One of the most prevalent STIs is the Human Papillomavirus (HPV). Certain high risk strains of HPV are believed to cause virtually all cervical cancers, over 90% of anal cancers, 70% of oropharyngeal cancers, and the majority of anal  genital warts. HPV is preventable through vaccination and is available for both men and women. Several educational interventions have been employed, yet baseline awareness and knowledge related to HPV and 9vHPV remains relatively low among young men. What is not known is the most effective method for providing HPV and 9vHPV information to young men. The purpose of this qualitative study was to learn from young men on how they would like to receive HPV and 9vHPV information. Men between the ages of 18–26 were invited to participate in the study. Ten focus group sessions with a total of 68 p articipants were conducted from three Midwest community colleges. Analysis resulted in themes related to STIs, HPV and 9vHPV knowledge, 9vHPV receipt, sexual health communication, and communication strategies. Findings suggest that there is not a “one size fits all” preferred communication modal ity. Recommendations for effective HPV communication include healthcare practitioner self-awareness, community environments where healthcare practitioners can engage in HPV related cancer prevention activities and advocacy for medically accurate sexual health educat...

CONCLUSIONS: The COI of liver diseases in Japan has been decreasing for the past 15 years. In the future, a further reduction in patients with hepatitis C is expected, and even if the incidence of NASH and alcoholic liver disease increases, that of cirrhosis and liver cancer will likely continue to decrease.

We aim to evaluate levels of the most common environmental heavy metals in hair of patients with AK/NMSC as compared to healthy controls. METHODS: 31 patients diagnosed with AK/N...

We present four case studies of severe and mild form of tetanus, wound infection with the presence of C. tetani without the development of clinical tetanus in a fully vaccinated individual, and unexpected risk of tetanus in an unvaccinated child. Due to the rare occurrence of tetanus in Czechia, the clinical awareness of the risk of tetanus decreases as well as the clinical experience with diagnosis of early or mild forms of tetanus. Communication skills during the management of contaminated wounds play a critical role in the decision who should get tetanus anatoxin only and who should get antitetanus immunoglobulin along ...
