Get It & Forget It, an educational video about intrauterine devices (IUDs), was developed and evaluated.
A feasibility study and a pre/post evaluation nested within a randomized trial were conducted to test change in knowledge about IUDs and intention to get an IUD after viewing a theory-driven dramatic video. Participants (n=315) completed surveys before and after watching the video.
Knowledge about IUD effectiveness increased significantly (33% to 64%, p<.001), as did intention to use an IUD (18% to 36%, p<.001) postvideo.
An online theory-driven video intervention can reach young women seeking information about long-acting contraception.
