dc.description.abstractThis thesis explores the experiences of several pediatric health care providers in the Boston area. It identifies and examines the stories told by providers to discuss their profession, their decision-making processes, and the methods that they use to "know" themselves and their patients through the lens of current topics of interest in pediatrics, including the Human Papillomavirus (HPV) vaccines. Pediatricians, pediatric nurse practitioners, adolescent health providers, and pediatric focused gynecologists were recruited from several private, community-based, and academic medical center practices in the Boston area. This study used several qualitative data collection methods, focusing primarily on the use of semi-structured interviews while including participant and non-participant observations in two distinct clinical settings.en_US
