Problem: Low enrollment and participation are common in face-to-face parenting interventions. Developing innovative delivery methods is one way to address participation barriers. The purpose of this study was to test the feasibility of a Web-based delivery model for an evidence-based behavioral parent training program.
Methods: Parents (n = 9) completed two Web-based prototype sessions of the Chicago Parent Program delivered on an Android tablet over 2 weeks, and then participated in a post-intervention focus group. Quantitative and qualitative data were collected.
Findings: The Web-based delivery adaptation was feasible and useful for low-income urban parents.
Conclusions: Our preliminary findings suggest that Web-based delivery is a feasible approach to integrating mental health prevention into systems of care. Translating interventions to alternative delivery platforms is promising for nursing to increase access to evidence-based interventions.
