  Purpose

This study evaluated the educational effectiveness of a youth-friendly pre-test video (derived from a previous qualitative study) and compared it with in-person HIV pre-test counseling. A convenience sample of 200 medically stable individuals between the ages of 15 and 21 presenting to an urban ED were recruited to participate in this study and randomized into 2 groups. Individuals were eligible if they were English-speaking, sexually active and able to consent. All participants completed a sexual risk factor and demographic survey. Group 1 completed a validated pre-test knowledge measure, viewed the HIV education video then completed a post-test knowledge measure. Group 2 completed the same knowledge measures, but received pre-test HIV counseling from a trained public health advocate. HIV testing was optional
