(May 12, 2023) — Christina X. Marea, PhD, MA, FACNM, an assistant professor of nursing, in collaboration with researchers at the World Health Organization, published new data as lead author of a manuscript that explored expert opinion on the key competencies for health workers caring for women and girls affected by genital cutting. The paper, titled “Advancing the measurement of knowledge, attitudes and practices of health workers who care for women and girls who have undergone female genital mutilation/ cutting (FGM/C): A qualitative exploration of expert opinion,” was published April 27 in PLOS ONE. Marea and her co-authors say the data they’ve published will inform the development of comprehensive assessment tools of health worker knowledge, attitudes and practices.
