Abstract

To meet the needs of low-literacy, underserved, Mexican-American patients, this transdisciplinary team created a freestanding computer kiosk. Smoking awareness and cessation were the topic chosen. Focus groups were used to inform the design and creation of each screen to include appropriate culturally based images and messages. A kiosk was placed in a primary care clinic in a West Texas city. User feedback was collected, showing that this method of patient education is acceptable.
