The content of a Thai adolescent web board was compared with a content analysis of research about Thai adolescents retrieved for the years, 1992 to 2003. Due to Thai adolescent hesitancy to openly talking to adults, faculty of the Boromarajonani College of Nursing Nopparat Vajira, Thailand, established a web board for health questions and answers in 2001 for nursing students and high school students of a net work school. Assuming that adolescents posted the questions on adolescent health, a total of 83 questions was selected for content analysis. The Thai adolescent studies were identified by searches of MEDLINE, CINAHL, PsycINFO, and Pub Med and selected for consideration if the focus of the studies were primarily on Thai adolescent health or Thai adolescents and parents; written in English, and retrievable. Of the 246 citations, only 17 studies met inclusion criteria. The most common construct found in both the literature and the questions was development across life cycle. Within this domain, sexuality was a major theme of discussion. Further, dating, love relationships, and parenting were more often discussed on the web board but not in the literature. The mental health domain revealed interesting differences. The examined literature covered psychosocial change, whereas the web board questions were concerned with body image, suicide and peer influence. It is recommended that investigators consider incorporating adolescents as research team participants, particularly as they examine mental health promotion, adolescent and family relationships, and concerns of Thai adolescents.
