|Human Papillomavirus Infection||Behavioral: IMB Intervention Group Behavioral: Attention Control|
HPV infections are prominent among college-aged women. Although HPV vaccines decrease women's risk for cervical cancer, vaccination rates remain inadequate. This study explored the utility of an Information-Motivation-Behavioral Skills intervention in promoting HPV vaccination knowledge, motivation, and behavioral skills among college aged women.
Methods: Participants were randomly assigned to a single-session intervention or attention-control arm and were assessed at pre-intervention, post-intervention, and at 1-month follow-up.

Experimental: IMB Intervention Group
The IMB group received an HPV Vaccination Information Statement (VIS) often given to individuals prior to vaccination. In addition, they received the following:
Behavioral: IMB Intervention Group
Participants in the IMB group received information specific to HPV, cervical cancer, and the HPV vaccine. This information was delivered in a group setting, and it was delivered via a PowerPoint presentation that included short video clips.
Other Name: IMB Based Educational Program
Active Comparator: Attention Control Group
The attention control group also received an HPV Vaccination Information Statement (VIS) often given to individuals prior to vaccination. In addition, to maintain consistency with the treatment's presentation format, participants watched a set of short video clips encompassing aspects of women's general and sexual health.
Behavioral: Attention Control
Participants in the attention control arm watched a PowerPoint that contained a series of short video clips encompassing aspects of women's general and sexual health. This was also conducted in a group setting.
- HPV, Cervical Cancer, and HPV Vaccine Knowledge Questionnaire [ Time Frame: One month ]Consistent with studies based on the IMB model,, participants were assessed on their level of knowledge regarding information about HPV, the HPV vaccine, and cervical cancer.
- Vaccination Motivation Questionnaire [ Time Frame: One month ]Consistent with studies based on the IMB model, motivation to get vaccinated was assessed through five questionnaires to measure different aspects of motivation: perceived motivation, attitudes related to getting vaccinated, perceived social norms to getting vaccinated, behavioral intentions, and perceived risk for HPV/cervical cancer.
- Behavioral Skills Questionnaire [ Time Frame: One Month ]Consistent with studies based on the IMB model, participants' belief and confidence in their ability to get vaccinated were assessed with questions adapted from these studies.
- Behavioral uptake of the HPV vaccine Questionnaire [ Time Frame: One month ]
