GUBERT, Fabiane do Amaral et al. Scales to preventive measure of behavior in adolescent girls to front STD/HIV: integrative review. Rev. Gaúcha Enferm. (Online) [online]. 2010, vol.31, n.4, pp.794-802. ISSN 1983-1447.

Since the dawn of the AIDS epidemic in the international epidemiological scenario, prevention of transmission of HIV among women and adolescents has been one of the biggest challenges in controlling the disease. Through integrative review, this study aims to describe the studies that used validated scales in order to access behaviors of female adolescents facing the prevention of sexually transmitted diseases. For selection of articles used two databases: PubMed, digital file produced by the National Library of Medicine and the Cumulative Index to Nursing and Allied Health Literature (CINAHL); the sample consisted of seven items. The scales indicate that health professionals must recognize the interactions among peers, partners and parents to assess the vulnerability of adolescents and encourage the use of reliable tools for nursing practice in the prevention of these diseases.
