|Condition or disease||Intervention/treatment||Phase|
|Sleep Physical Activity Family and Household Computer, Attitude to Adolescent Behavior||Behavioral: Family Media Use Plan Behavioral: Media Use Resources Awareness||Not Applicable|
For this study there will be three time points of data collection and participant contact by Qualtrics:
Time 1: Baseline
Participants (teen and parent dyads) will be randomized into one of two tracks:
Track A: Family Media Use Plan intervention Track B: Awareness intervention (delayed start intervention)
The track A group will complete a survey regarding technology rules, tech use, and health behaviors, as well as the Family Media Use Plan embedded into the survey. Track B group will only complete the baseline survey.
Time 2: Follow Up Survey: 4-6 weeks after baseline
Track A group will complete a follow-up survey similar to the baseline with additional follow-up questions around their use of the family media use plan.
The track B group will complete a similar survey and receive the Awareness Intervention, providing resources available regarding youth and media use .
Time 3: Follow Up Survey: 3-4 months after baseline
All participants will be asked to complete their corresponding tracks (track A or track B) survey again to understand use media use and health behaviors change over time.
Track A or B designated questions are labeled within each uploaded survey.
|Study Type :||Interventional (Clinical Trial)|
|Estimated Enrollment :||3000 participants|
|Intervention Model:||Parallel Assignment|
|Intervention Model Description:||Track A will be our intervention group receiving the Family Media Use intervention Track B will serve as control group at Time 2, and then receive an awareness intervention at that time to compare that intervention at Time 3 to Track A at Time 2|
|Masking:||None (Open Label)|
|Masking Description:||This will be an online intervention with interventions pre-determined by tracks, so no masking is needed|
|Official Title:||Youth Health and Social Media: Objective 2 Pilot Intervention|
|Estimated Study Start Date :||March 2019|
|Estimated Primary Completion Date :||December 2019|
|Estimated Study Completion Date :||December 2020|
No Intervention: Control (Track B assessed at Time 2)
A survey regarding tech use, health behaviors and well-being including physical activity, anxiety, and sleep
Experimental: Online Family Media Use Plan (Track A)
The Online Family Media Use Plan group will receive a link to American Academy of Pediatrics Family Media Use plan at the end of the survey, which describes internet safety ideas for teens and parents to review and create together.
Behavioral: Family Media Use Plan
A tool developed by the American Academy of Pediatrics that engages teens and parent to discuss internet safety ideas and develop rules around technology use together.
Experimental: Media Use Resources Awareness (Track B assessed at Time 3)
Resources offered to parents and teens that include tools and data for safe technology use among teens
Behavioral: Media Use Resources Awareness
Resources offered to parents and teens that include tools and publicly available resources for safe technology use among teens
- Technology and Media Use Rules [ Time Frame: 4 months after initial baseline ]Increases in the number of positive responses to technology and media rules followed or maintained
- Changes in sleep behavior [ Time Frame: 2 and 4 months after initial baseline (Time 2 and 3) ]Changes in sleep as measured by the 8 item Pediatric Daytime Sleepiness Scale (PDSS). Participants will assess their sleep behaviors by answering each item with "never", "seldom", "sometimes", "frequently", or "always". Items are scored from 0-4 (never= 0; seldom=1; sometimes=2; frequently=3; always=4) with a score above 16 indicating poor sleep behavior.
- Changes in risk for Problematic Internet Use [ Time Frame: 2 and 4 months after initial baseline (Time 2 and 3) ]Changes in problematic internet use symptoms as measured by the 18-item Problematic and Risky Internet Use Screening Scale (PRIUSS). For each item participants will select from "never", "rarely", "sometimes", "often", or "very often" in relation to their internet use over the last 6 months. Each option is coded with "never" equal to 1 and "very often" equal to 5. An overall composite score is calculated at the end, with an overall score of 25 indicating a risk for problematic internet use.
- Changes in physical activity [ Time Frame: 2 and 4 months after initial baseline (Time 2 and 3) ]Reported physical activity as measured by the 3 item Physical Activity Scale. Response options range from never (1) to 4 times or more a week (5) for each item. Higher scores indicating greater physical activity.
