Using nominal technique to inform a sexual health program for black youth

Academic Article


  • Objectives: To describe how nominal group technique (NGT) was used to inform the development of a sexual health education program for black high school youth in the South. Methods: NGT was used with a community advisory board (CAB) to obtain information regarding the key components of a sexual health program for youth in their community. Results: The CAB identified 5 priorities to include in the program: sex education, "keeping it real," responsibility/consequences, self-esteem, and female aggressiveness. Conclusions: Findings can be useful in modeling the successful use of NGT as a formative step toward developing health education programs for minority youth. Copyright © PNG Publications.
