Teaching Condom Use Skills


The latest paper from protocol CTN-0018  by PNW Node researchers Donald Calsyn, Mary Hatch-Maillette, and Suzanne Doyle, as well as other colleagues from the project, was just published in the journal Substance Abuse.

The article, “Teaching Condom Use Skills:  Practice is Superior to Observation,” found that men participating in the study could effectively be taught correct male and female condom use skills using an interactive skills practice exercise, and maintain those skills for up to six months.  Participants only exposed to a demonstration of condom skills, or who received no intervention at all, did not perform as well.
