Abstract

Introduction: The purpose of this qualitative study was to understand the feasibility and acceptability of implementing eHealth Familias Unidas, an Internet-based, family-based, preventive intervention for Hispanic adolescents, in primary care. Methods: Semistructured individual interviews with clinic personnel and facilitators (i.e., physicians, nurse practitioners, administrators, and mental health workers; . n = 9) and one focus group with parents (n = 6) were audiorecorded, transcribed verbatim, and analyzed using a general inductive approach. Results: Nine major themes emerged, including recommendations to minimize disruption to clinic flow, improve collaboration and training of clinic personnel and the research team, promote the clinic as a trusted setting for improving children's behavioral health, and highlight the flexibility and convenience of the eHealth format. Discussion: This study provides feasibility and acceptability findings, along with important considerations for researchers and primary care personnel interested in collaborating to implement an eHealth preventive intervention in pediatric primary care.
