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.
