Building upon a previous pilot study, an intermediate assessment of the BFWHW health promotion tools and materials related to physical activity and healthy PO 00000 Frm 00064 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 eating will be conducted in order to identify characteristics of both individual and organizational change toward health and wellness associated with the uptake and use of the BFWHW tools. This data collection effort will ensure that the BFWHW tools are disseminated and utilized in the most effective ways, used to inform future BFWHW programming, and added to the literature regarding evidence-based women’s health and wellness initiatives. Towards this end, questionnaires will be used to collect data from adolescent and adult women clients, providers, and administrators of community health provider organizations. Data collected will include process, impact, and outcome measures. Data domains include the implementation and use of the BFWHW tools, including distribution and use; provider training; organizational characteristics related to successful implementation; client and provider awareness; attitudes about the importance of physical activity, nutrition and self-efficacy to take steps to make effective changes; increase in knowledge and intent to change behavior after exposure; and short-term outcomes related to improved preventive healthcare for women.
