Help with doctoral project

Postby pkelley » 04 Feb 2011, 05:09

Hello all,
As a nurse doctoral student in higher education I am interested in teen pregnancy, however my study focus is on those healthcare professionals who care for this population.In the USA, as many as 1 in 6 women nationwide become adolescent mothers, making adolescent pregnancy and childbearing issues a frequently encountered occurrence by pediatricians and adolescent medicine health care providers. Both social and medical programs focus on prevention and management of adolescent pregnancies; however, caring for the adolescent-headed family is less well understood. Has anyone done research in this area? If so I would love to hear from you.
