Sexual Health Assessments of at Risk Pediatric Patients by Residents: An Educational Intervention
Dr. Rosalind Bihun, PGY2
Supervisor: Dr. Allison Rodrigues
My resident research project aims to compare the ability of pediatric residents to perform full sexual health assessments before and after an educational intervention. We hope to deliver an online module on sexual health history taking and appropriate STI screening to residents. A retrospective chart review assessing sexual health assessments in adolescents will then be completed to see the impact of this intervention.
- To elicit feedback regarding the methodology of this research project.
- To collect suggestions regarding the most effective delivery of educational interventions.
