Abstract

PURPOSE:

This study examined African American adolescents' perceptions of a mobile cell phone (MCP)-enhanced intervention and development of an MCP-based HIV prevention intervention.

DESIGN AND METHODS:

One focus group was conducted with 11 adolescents who participated in the Becoming a Responsible Teen Text Messaging project.

RESULTS:

Adolescents said they benefited from the MCP-enhanced approach and were receptive to the idea of developing an MCP-based intervention.

PRACTICE IMPLICATIONS:

Nurses can use the findings of this report as a starting point in examining the development of MCP-based sexuality education with parents and adolescents.
