“Motivational Interviewing to Increase PrEP Uptake (MI-PrEP)”
This project is funded by a Provost Award for Dr. Sannisha Dale from the University of Miami. An open pilot trial and a pilot randomized control trial of a brief two-session counseling intervention to increase PrEP uptake among Black women at risk for HIV utilizing Motivational Interviewing will be conducted. Outcomes include knowledge of and motivation to use PrEP, PrEP uptake, and perceived barriers to PrEP usage.
Behavioral - Experimental Intervention (MI-PrEP)
The experimental intervention will consist of two sessions. The first session will involve psycho-education on PrEP and Motivational Interviewing to explore ambivalence about PrEP uptake. The second session will involve Motivational Interviewing and case management to explore barriers to accessing PrEP.
Behavioral - Enhanced Treatment as Usual (E-TAU)
Participants assigned to the control condition will receive two sessions, both of which involve psychoeducation on PrEP.
