Rutgers College of Nursing faculty member tests cell phone videos to reduce HIV risk
Date:12/16/2008

(NEWARK, N.J., Dec. 16, 2008) Rutgers College of Nursing faculty member, Rachel Jones, has been awarded a four-year, $2 million grant from the National Institute of Nursing Research at National Institutes of Health (NIH) to study the effects of a series of soap opera videos designed to reduce HIV sexual risk behavior in young women living in urban areas. The videos will be accessed on video-capable cell phones.

Jones, assistant professor at the College of Nursing at Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey, and her team, are currently filming the urban soap opera series with a $154,400 grant from The Healthcare Foundation of New Jersey. "With funding from the Healthcare Foundation of New Jersey, we are able to create this series of 12 soap opera videos with a professional staff of filmmaker and actors. The grant from the National Institute of Nursing Research at NIH will allow us to evaluate the effectiveness of this approach in reducing HIV risk in women," said Jones.

The series of video vignettes is based on content analysis of several focus group discussions with women between the ages of 18 and 25. By presenting realistic stories, via a soap opera format, women can identify with the heroines' emotionally charged process of change, according to Jones.

"The videos will be viewed over cell phones so that women may view them repeatedly and in privacy. If the aims of this study are achieved, the use of cell phones to view videos could change the paradigm of how health promotion is communicated between clinic sessions," Jones, a Boonton Township, N.J. resident, said. "The popularity of the cell phone and use of the Internet offer a new communication channel to address the health disparities in young urban women."

Jones previously was a recipient of a National Library of Medicine (NLM) grant to create a computer-based interview that would categorize level of HIV risk and provide a version of a pilot soap opera video en
