You are being asked to participate in this research study because you identified as a nurse. The study for which you are being asked to participate is designed to investigate the factors influencing nurses’ behaviors in sexual health promotion.
The purpose of this study is to investigate the factors that influence nurses’ behaviors in promoting sexual health with their patients. Specifically, the study aims to find the effects of sociodemographic factors including age, sexual orientation, educational level, and sexual attitudes on sexual health promotion behaviors among nurses using a structural equation model.
To be a voluntary participant in this study, you will be asked to complete a one-time online survey.  The survey will take you approximately 5-10 minutes.
The investigator involved with the study will not be collecting any personal information for the study. All responses to this survey are anonymous and confidential. Your name or identity will not be linked in any way to the research data.
Participation in this study is completely voluntary. You can also stop your participation any time. Whatever decisions you make, there will be no penalty to you, and no loss of benefits to which you were otherwise entitled. Your participation will not have any impact on your employment status. You may skip any questions you do not want to answer and still remain in the study.
You will not be paid for participating in this research study.
The potential risks or discomforts of the study are expected to be minimal. The questionnaires will specifically ask for your sexual attitudes and practices which you may find inappropriate and if so, you may stop the survey at any time. If you feel that the questions affected you emotionally please contact your primary care physician.
The research team will take appropriate measures to keep your study information private and secure, but there is always the potential risk of a loss of confidentiality.
