Compare the incidence of AIDS, gonorrhea, and syphilis in your state with the national average. To whom are these diseases reported within your locale? Does the reporting require the name of the individual, or does the individual remain anonymous? Interview someone at the local health department who is responsible for notifying the partners of clients with STDs. How does the person contact a person under 18 years of age? What strategies are used to bring the partner in for treatment? How does the person find the partners and make contact? How is confidentiality maintained? How would you feel about reporting the actual identity of a person with any of these diseases? What roles of the nurse practicing in the community should be implemented regarding these (and other) sexually transmitted diseases? Each discussion posting must be professionally referenced according to APA guidelines and include professional journal articles, required textbook readings and may include professional websites.
