My name is Vanessa Iheanachor and I am a doctoral candidate at Walden University. I am conducting my dissertation research on Providers’ Perspectives on Barriers Associated with Repeat Pregnancies in Rural Southeastern U.S. There are many studies that have explored such barriers that impact reproductive health-care services from an adolescent’s perspective. To date, limited research has explored these barriers from a health care provider’s perspective. Findings from this research will inform the development of targeted teen pregnancy prevention programs, which will influence equitable health outcomes for all adolescents.
In order to participate in this study, you must meet the following criteria:
Currently certified and licensed to practice as a health care provider in one of these target states: Georgia, South Carolina, Tennessee, and Florida
- Has credentialed licensing as one of the following: Physician (M.D. or D.O.), Physician Assistant (PA), Nurse Practitioner (NP), or Certified Nurse-Midwife (CNM)
- Provides patient care in one of the target states
- Works at least part time (i.e. 20 hours a week)
- Routinely sees adolescent patients during their day to day
To gain a better understanding of these perceived barriers, I invite you to participate in this online survey. You would be asked a series of 14 multiple-choice questions and the survey will take approximately 5-10 minutes to complete. If you are interested in participating in this research, please click here to go directly to the survey. The first page includes information about the study and is where you will consent to participate. Then, you may proceed to the first question.
Thank you for your time and consideration,
