Abstract

Introduction

The purpose of this study was to assess effects of three different educational intervention arms on knowledge of and intention to receive Pap testing and HPV co-testing.

Methods

Three active educational intervention arms were developed: a fotonovela, a radionovela, and a digital story. A pilot randomized controlled trial of 160 Latinas was conducted to assess the effectiveness of the intervention arms in increasing knowledge of cervical cancer and HPV and intention to be screened for cervical cancer compared to an attention control group (flu vaccination).

Results

Women in all three treatment arms significantly increased knowledge about cervical cancer compared to control arm (p = 0.02). Knowledge about cervical cancer screening also increased in the active arms compared to control (p = 0.0003). Knowledge of HPV risk also increased relative to the control (p = 0.0001). There were no significant differences between the intervention arms in increased knowledge of cervical cancer or cervical cancer screening (p = 0.57 and 0.16, respectively).

Discussion

This study supported the use of small media interventions in narrative education form as effective in increasing knowledge and intention to be screened for cervical cancer. The three culturally relevant interventions, built on qualitative data, were all successful in increasing knowledge.
