Prevention and Intervention Strategies Across Health Disciplines

Tuesday, November 3, 2015: 8:30 a.m. - 10:00 a.m.
This session will cover prevention and intervention strategies by examining various health disciplines. We will present on intrapersonal, interpersonal, and organizational predictors of sexual assault victimization and perpetration in a sample of undergraduate college students; assess medical student attitudes and knowledge about vaccination; assessing surveys of patients on prevalence and thoroughness of doctors’ advice on health practices and the impact on patients’ health status, health literacy, and patients’ ratings of the quality of health care services; the impact sex, age, authoritarian parenting, depression, school experiences, alcohol consumption and legal problems have on suicidal thoughts, planning, and attempts among 12 to 17 year old youth in the U.S.; and TV viewing patterns and addiction among self-identified “binge-watchers.”
Session Objectives: Identify risk factors sexual assault victimization and perpetration and discuss implications of examining risk factors for college health practitioners. Explain changes in knowledge and attitudes towards vaccination in third and fourth-year medical students as compared to first and second-year students. Describe five fundamental categories of advice that doctors provide to patients on health practices and behaviors of healthy living. Discuss the impact of demographic variables, parenting style, school experiences, and personal factors on suicidal thoughts, planning, and attempts among youth. Discuss the negative health effects of prolonged TV viewing, list the characteristics of "binge-watchers," explain the relationship between "binge-watching" and TV addiction.
