Time Frame
Start Date: July 1, 2022
Estimated Completion Date: March 2023
Target number of participants: 60
Experimental: AYA participants
AYA participants will complete a brief initial survey consisting of demographic information and the Visual Analog Scale (VAS) and the #HerHeart tool in clinic. AYA participants will the rate the usability of the #HerHeart tool using the Website Analysis and Measurement Inventory (WAMMI), the likelihood they would recommend the app to their friends, and the likelihood of behavior change. AYA participants will then be offered the opportunity to continue into the 3-month intervention phase.
Experimental: HCP participants
HCP participants will complete a survey consisting primarily of demographic information and the #HerHeart tool. HCP participants will then rate the usability of the tool using the WAMMI, the usefulness of the #HerHeart to their practice and the likelihood they would incorporate it into usual clinical care.
