Evaluating the effect of learning by public health nurses and midwives during a qualifying postgraduate course in sexual relationships, sexuality, and oral contraceptives (English)
Abstract [no]

Formål: Vurdere om etterutdanningen, som gir helsesøstre og jordmødre rekvireringsrett for p-piller til jenter i alderen16 til og med 19 år, har bidratt til økte kunnskaper om p-piller, endret holdning til ungdom og seksualitet og økt interesse for å tilby veiledning i samliv og seksualitet.

Metode: Datamaterialet er fra en tidligere undersøkelse innhentet ved bruk av spørreskjemaer blant helsesøstre og jordmødre før og etter kvalifiserende etterutdanning.

Resultater: Svarprosenten var 94. Studentene har tilegnet seg signifikant mer kunnskap om p-pillers virkning og fysiske og psykiske bivirkninger, men de har ikke tilegnet seg signifikant mer kunnskap om risiko for alvorlige sykdommer ved p-pillebruk. Etter kurset var det 58 og 50 % som svarte at tenåringsjenter trenger informasjon om faren for blodpropp i henholdsvis bein og lunger ved bruk av p-piller. Studentene var relativt liberale i sitt syn på ungdom og seksualitet før kurset og dette hadde ikke endret seg signifikant etter kurset. Etter kurset var studentene signifikant mer positive til å tilby veiledning i samliv og seksualitet.

Konklusjon: Resultatene viser at målet om at kurset skulle gi studentene faglig oppdatering er bare delvis nådd. Studentene er blitt bedre kvalifisert til å informere om p-pillers virkning og fysiske og psykiske bivirkninger, mens deres kunnskap om risiko for alvorlige sykdommer ved p-pillebruk er uforandret etter kurset. Studentene viser etter kurset signifikant større interesse for å tilby veiledning i samliv og seksualitet

Abstract [en]

Purpose: To examine whether the qualifying postgraduate course, which authorizes public health nurses and midwives to prescribe oral contraceptives to teenage girls 16–19 years of age has increased the students’ knowledge of oral contraceptives, contributed to changing their attitude to adolescence and sexuality, and increased their motivation for offering teenage girls counselling in sexuality and sexual relationships.Method: The data set used for this study is a previously existing survey collected among public health nurses and midwives through questionnaires administered before and after they completed the course.Results: The response rate was 94 %. The students significantly increased their knowledge about effects and physical and psychological side effects of using oral contraceptives, but did not about the risk of serious diseases that accompanies oral contraceptive use. After the course, 58% and 50 % of the students found it necessary to inform teenage girls about the risk of blood clots in legs and lungs, respectively, when using oral contraceptives. The students’ attitudes towards youth and sexuality were quite liberal before the course and the course did not significantly change those attitudes. Moreover, students were significantly more positive about offering teenage girls counselling regarding sexual relationships and sexuality.Conclusion: The results demonstrate that the purpose of the course, i.e. upgrading students’ qualifications, is only partly successful. Although the students are significantly better qualified to inform teenage girls about oral contraceptives effects and their side effects, their knowledge about the risk of serious diseases did not increase significantly. The students show significantly more interest in offering counselling about sexual relationships and sexuality after completing the course.
