Misperceptions and stereotypes in nursing care for sexually transmitted infections and domestic violence: a qualitative exploratory study.

Conclusions: Nurses need to recognise the impact that nurse perceptions and stereotyping have on disclosures and provision of care for STIs, particularly in the context of DV. Consideration is also needed in relation to sexual and reproductive autonomy, the impact on disclosure and provision of care. PMID: 31594466 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Trichomonas vaginalis (TV) is a protozoan flagellate which usually dwells in the urogenital tract of humans. It is considered as a major cause of sexually transmitted disease (STD) (Satterwhite et al. 2013). TV is more prevalent than Chlamydia trachomatis, Neisseria gonorrhoeae, and syphilis altogether (World Health Organization, 2011). However, it is excluded from public health STD awareness programs and is considered a neglected parasitic infection (www.cdc.gov/parasites/npi). It is not a reportable infection and approximately 250 million new cases occur every year (World Health Organization, 2011).
