In a previous longitudinal study, Keller and colleagues used the Common Sense Model (CSM) to guide an examination of the disease experiences of 100 persons with HPV infection. One focus of this study was description of the representation of HPV during the first year after diagnosis. Representation was conceptualized as disease stressors along the dimensions of cause, symptoms, consequences, time course, controllability and negative stereotyping. Participants reported a large number and broad range of disease stressors, particularly in the consequence domain, and these stressors did not decrease significantly during the first year after diagnosis. Building on this prior work, the objective of the next phase of the research is to develop and pilot test a representational intervention for persons with HPV infections. Strategies for addressing this objective will be described. First, an inventory to measure representation of HPV will be refined for easy use in clinical practice settings. This step will involve employing several panels of experts that include clinicians, experts in sexuality, and persons living with HPV infection. Second, the representational intervention will be developed. This step will involve delineation of replacement information to correct misconceptions about HPV as well as coping advice. Testing of the intervention for persons with HPV infection will be discussed.
