Description

A Pilot Study of a Computer-tailored Intervention to Promote HPV Vaccination among Mexican American Adolescents A Pilot Testing of a Tailored Intervention to promote HPV Vaccination Among Mexican American Adolescents ABSTRACT Subject population: Thirty Mexican American parents who have one or more adolescent child aged 11-17 and four healthcare providers will be recruited to examine the feasibility, acceptability, and preliminary efficacy of a bilingual, computer-tailored, HPV vaccination promotion intervention. Research design: A one-group, pre- and post-test, quasi-experimental design. Instrument: We adapted questions from valid and reliable measures to assess parents intention to vaccinate their child, HPV-related knowledge, perceived risk, facilitators, barriers, cultural beliefs related to HPV vaccination, peer norms and sociodemographics. Feasibility will be assessed by the ease of use (self-report), response rate, and number of parents who complete the intervention. An acceptability scale will assess cultural appropriateness of the content and wording, screen brightness and color, clarity of directions, pace of the program, and likelihood of recommending the intervention to others. Procedure: Eligible and consented parents will participate in the study while waiting in clinics. Parents will first answer a survey prior to the intervention (T1). This computer-tailored intervention will take 15-20 minutes. Immediately after the intervention, they will take another survey (T2). Four healthcare providers will be interviewed to learn about the feasibility of integrating the intervention into the clinic routine.
