Introduction

We all know that many of us don’t practice safety sexually intercourse. A sexually transmitted disease(STD), also known as sexually transmitted infection or “STI” is an illness that has a significant probability of transmission between humans or animals by means of human sexual behavior, including vaginal intercourse, oral sex, and anal sex. While in the past, these illnesses have mostly been referred to as STDs , the term sexually transmitted infection (STI) has been preferred, as it has a broader range of meaning; a person may be ''infected'', and may potentially infect others, without showing signs of ''disease''. Some STIs can also be transmitted via the use of IV drug needles after its use by an infected person, as well as through childbirth or breastfeeding.

Theoretical Framework:

Hildegard Peplau’s Theory about the Interpersonal Relations Theory. An interpersonal

process of therapeutic interactions between an Individual who is sick or in need of health

services and a nurse especially educated to recognize, respond to the need for help.

Nursing is a “maturing force and an educative instrument”

Identified 4 phases of the Nurse – Patient relationship:

1. Orientation – individual/family has a “felt need” and seeks professional assistance from a

nurse (who is a stranger). This is the problem identification phase.

2. Identification – where the patient begins to have feelings of belongingness and a capacity

for dealing with the problem, creating an optimistic attitude from which inner strength

ensues. Here happens the selection of appropriate professional assistance.

3. Exploitation – the nurse uses communication tools to offer services to the patient, who is

expected to take advantage of all services.

4. Resolution – where patient’s needs have already been met by the collaborative efforts

between the patient and the nurse.  Therapeutic relationship is terminated and the links

are dissolved, as patient drifts away from identifying with the nurse as the helping person.
