The STBBI Stigma Scale was developed as an adaptation of the HPASS.
Along with the STBBI Stigma Scale, participants also completed the following questionnaires:
It was hypothesized that there would be no correlation between the MC-SF and the STBBI categories.
(19) Analyses for the measure were run separately for each of the STBBI categories (because they are theoretically separate but also to mitigate multicollinearity).
Age, gender and professional role were not significantly associated with any of the STBBI category totals in bivariate associations, and therefore further subanalyses were not conducted with these variables.
Each STBBI category was examined for suitability for factor analysis.
Internal consistency reliability for each total score and all subscales for each STBBI category were all acceptable to excellent (hepatitis C ranging from Cronbach's [alpha] = 0.767 to 0.902; HIV from Cronbach's [alpha] = 0.809 to 0.906; other viral from Cronbach's [alpha] = 0.853 to 0.923; and bacterial from Cronbach's [alpha] = 0.852 to 0.915).
(2-9) Risky behaviours are prevalent among these youth, making them vulnerable to sexually transmitted and blood-borne infections (STBBIs), unplanned pregnancy and other health problems.
Given the increasing burden of STBBIs in Quebec, the objectives of this study were to document sexual health risk behaviours and the prevalence of CTGI and NGGI among youth residing in Youth Protection Centres.
The study questionnaire was developed following a literature review of articles related to risk factors associated with STBBIs among adolescents in general as well as among vulnerable youth.
Risky sexual behaviours are prevalent among youth entering residential care, resulting in significant health problems such as STBBIs and unplanned pregnancies.
