Abstract

An experimental study was conducted to test the effect of a nurse‐client transactional intervention (King, 1981) on 51 female adolescents' oral contraceptive adherence. Subjects were randomly assigned to a control or an experimental group. Both groups experienced the clinics' contraceptive teaching. Subjects in the experimental group experienced the transactional intervention. Contraceptive perceptions were measured immediately post‐intervention and at the three‐month follow‐up. Oral contraceptive adherence was measured at the three‐month follow‐up. Female adolescents who experienced the transactional intervention had greater levels of oral contraceptive adherence than those who had not (F = 4.75, p <.05).
