Dates: 2/1/2019 - 5/31/2020


Principal Investigator: Natalie Leblanc, PhD, MPH, RN, BSN

The ubiquitous use of technology can be leveraged to promote couple autonomy toward sexual health promotion. To date such efforts health have been primarily conducted among men and few have incorporated couples. Further, little is known about provider perspectives regarding the HIV prevention toolkit as a potential patient engagement tool in health settings, and potential barriers and facilitators to uptake. The proposed multi-phase qualitative interpretive research study is designed to investigate providers’ perspectives regarding the use of an online eHealth HIV prevention toolkit as a patient engagement tool for couple-centered HIV prevention approaches.
