Abstract
THE LONG-TERM OBJECTIVES ARE TO BUILD ON THE EXISTING PDQ MODEL TO (1) INVESTIGATE ADAPTING PDQ-P AND HYPERMEDIA TO THE CANCER PREVEN- TION/CONTROL NEEDS OF HISPANICS AND (2) DEVELOP ENHANCED/EXPANDED VERSIONS OF PDQ-P FOR HISPANIC HEALTH CONSUMERS AND PROVIDERS. SPECIFIC PHASE I AIMS ARE TO: (1) IDENTIFY APPROPRIATE MECHANISMS FOR SERVING THE INTENDED AUDIENCES; (2) ASSESS PERTINENT CONTENT AND MODES OF DELIVERY; (3) DEVELOP A PRELIMINARY DESIGN FOR THE STACKWARE, INCLUDING GRAPHIC AND AUDIO ELEMENTS; (4) ASSESS CAPABILITY OF PORTING STACKWARE TO OTHER PLATFORMS; AND (5) PREPARE A PROTOTYPE AND FINAL DESIGN DOCUMENT FOR PHASE II. METHODS WILL INCLUDE: (1) LITERATURE REVIEW; (2) FOCUS GROUPS WITH EXPERTS ON CANCER PREVENTION, CROSS-CULTURAL COMMUNICATIONS, AND HISPANIC NEEDS/ISSUES; (3) DEFINING SCOPE OF APPLICATION FOR THE FEASIBILITY STUDY; (4) USE OF HYPERMEDIA TO DEVELOP A WORKING PROTOTYPE FOR ONE SECTION OF HISPANCE PDQ-P FOR PRELIMINARY TESTING OF CONTENT DENSITY, USER ACCEPTANCE, AND FUNCTIONALITY; AND (5) DEVELOPMENT OF DESIGN SPECIFICATIONS FOR COMPLETION OF PDQ-P FOR HIGH RISK POPULATIONS. THE PRODUCT WILL BE A MACINTOSH-BASED HYPERMEDIA SYSTEM DESIGNED TO MEET THE CANCER PREVENTION NEEDS OF MINORITY AND OTHER HIGH-RISK POPULATIONS FOR USE IN A VARIETY OF SETTINGS, INCLUDING COMMUNITY PREVENTION PROGRAMS, CLINICS, HMOS, AND LIBRARIES.
