Abstract
The reported increase of cases of sexually-transmitted infections (STD) in the USA is fast becoming a health challenge in the country (CDC, 2016). Family physicians can play an important role in preventing new cases of STD in their patients by initiating discussion and advising patients on safe sex practices during sexual health and non-sexual health consultations. A number of barriers may prevent a family physician from initiating discussion and advising patients on safe sex practices. The purpose of this study is to identify the reasons felt by family physicians to be the hindrance to their initiating discussion and advising of patients on safe sex practices. A questionnaire will be given to 51 Mayo Clinic-Florida family physicians and resident family physicians to access their views and perceived hindrance to initiating discussion and advising patients on safe sex practices. The data collected will be analyze to identify the perceptions of Mayo Clinic-Florida family physicians and why they may not initiate discussion and give advice to patients on safe sex practices. With the study, it is hoped that improved knowledge of the perceptions and practices of family physicians in Mayo Clinic-Florida regarding the initiation of discussion and giving of advice to patients on safe sex practices will arise. The knowledge may, in turn, contribute to better patient care, as the Continuing Medical Education (CME) or Clinical Training Program of family physicians may be adjusted to better prepare family physicians to initiate discussion and give advice to patients on safe sex practices.
