OBJECTIVE: The objectives of this study were to: (a) describe teen feedback on an asthma question prompt list/video intervention designed to motivate teens to be more engaged during visits and (b) examine teen demographics associated with teen acceptance of the intervention. METHODS: Two hundred and fifty-nine teens ages 11 to 17 with persistent asthma were enrolled into a randomized, controlled trial and assigned to either a standard care or an intervention group where they watched an educational video with their parents and received a prompt list to complete before visits. Teens were interviewed after visits. RESULTS: Of the 185 teens randomized to the intervention group: 93% said teens should complete the prompt lists before visits; 95% recommended teens should watch the video before visits; teens with moderate/severe persistent asthma were significantly more likely to find the prompt list useful; non-White teens were significantly more likely to find the prompt list and video more useful. CONCLUSIONS: Teens exposed to the question prompt list/video had very positive feedback about the intervention. PRACTICE IMPLICATIONS: Providers/practices should consider having teens complete question prompt lists during pre-visit wait time for use during visits and watch the video with their parents before visits.
