2014-08-27 03:13:53 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The primary aim of this study is to test a brief 4-session risk reduction intervention, based on Motivational Enhancement Therapy (MET) to reduce the co-occurrence of club drug use and sexual risk taking behaviors among non-treatment seeking young men who have sex with men (YMSM) in NYC.

Description

This study is a randomized clinical trial. A sample of 300 non-treatment seeking YMSM (ages 18-24) who report risky sex and club drug use in the past 90 days are being enrolled using active and passive community-based recruitment strategies in NYC. After baseline assessment, participants are being randomly assigned to one of two study arms: a Brief Risk Reduction Intervention Condition - a four session MET intervention piloted for feasibility and acceptability among YMSM, designed to increase readiness to change club drug use and unprotected sex; or an Education Comparison Condition - four sessions of facilitated education regarding the effects of club drugs and unprotected sex. Participants undergo follow-up assessments 3, 6, 9, and 12 months after baseline.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Work consisting of a clinical trial involving one or more test treatments, at least one control treatment, specified outcome measures for evaluating the studied intervention, and a bias-free method for assigning patients to the test treatment. The treatment may be drugs, devices, or procedures studied for diagnostic, therapeutic, or prophylactic effectiveness. Control measures include placebos, active medicine, no-treatment, dosage forms and regimens, historical comparisons, etc. When randomization using mathematical techniques, such as the use of a random numbers table, is employed to assign patients to test or control treatments, the trial is characterized as a RANDOMIZED CONTROLLED TRIAL.
