All of the following are examples of secondary disease prevention EXCEPT

  • leading a support group for people who suffer from depression.
  • mammogram screenings.
  • testing and treatment of babies born to mothers with syphilis.
  • developing a daily exercise program to prevent a second MI.
Number 1 is correct.
The goal of primary prevention is to prevent illness and disease before they occur, such as immunizing against disease. Secondary preventions reduce the impact and harm from an injury or disease that has already occurred. Mammogram screenings, testing and treating babies born to mothers with syphilis, and developing exercise programs to prevent MI are all examples of secondary prevention. A support group for depression is a tertiary prevention; it attempts to reduce the harmful impact of an ongoing illness or disease.
