Rhode Island Hospital: Adult entertainment workers likely to benefit from health care intervention
Date:11/28/2012

rivacy of all who took part. Rather than focus strictly on negative behavior, the survey also asked questions about general health, work patterns, workplace environment and safety. Until 2009, Rhode Island did not have a specific statute outlawing indoor prostitution. However in 2009, the buying and selling of sexual services was criminalized. Therefore, the researchers did not ask questions specifically about sexual contact at work in order to avoid implying that subjects and area clubs were involved in illegal activities.

"This study shows that we must be more proactive in educating this population," Choo said. "If they aren't being tested for HIV, nor protecting themselves, then they could contract and further spread the illness. By providing this population with information and appropriate interventions, we may be able to reduce the health risks and increase the number of adult entertainment club workers who seek necessary care and treatment in the future."

Choo's principal affiliation is Rhode Island Hospital, a member hospital of the Lifespan health system in Rhode Island. She also has an academic appointment at The Warren Alpert Medical School of Brown University, department of emergency medicine. Other Lifespan researchers involved in the study are Megan Ranney, M.D.; Michael Mello, M.D.; Karina Bertsch, MSW.; and Christine Garro, PA.
