Proposed Project WISEWOMAN National Program Evaluation—New—National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion (NCCDPHP), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Background and Brief Description The CDC has supported the WISEWOMAN program (Well-Integrated Screening and Evaluation for Women Across the Nation) since 1995. The WISEWOMAN program is designed to serve low-income women ages 40–64 who have elevated risk factors for cardiovascular disease (CVD) and have no health insurance, or are underinsured for medical and preventive care services. Through the PO 00000 Frm 00040 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 WISEWOMAN program, women have access to screening services for selected CVD risk factors such as elevated blood cholesterol, hypertension, and abnormal blood glucose levels; referrals to lifestyle programs; and referrals to medical care. WISEWOMAN participants must be co-enrolled in the CDC-sponsored National Breast and Cervical Cancer Early Detection Program (NBCCEDP). The WISEWOMAN program is administered through cooperative agreements with state, territorial, or tribal health departments. At present, approximately two-thirds of program funding is provided by CDC with the other one-third supplied by the state, territory, or tribal organization. Each WISEWOMAN awardee submits to CDC an annual progress report that describes program objectives and activities, and semi-annual data reports (known as minimum data elements, or MDE) on the screening, assessment, and lifestyle program services offered to women who participate in the program (see WISEWOMAN Reporting System, OMB No. 0920–0612, exp. 12/31/2016). Participant-level MDE are de-identified prior to transmission to CDC. In 2013, CDC released the fourth funding opportunity announcement (FOA) for the WISEWOMAN program (DP13–1302), which resulted in fouryear cooperative agreements with 22 state, territorial, and tribal health departments, including 5 new and 17 continuing awardees from the previous FOA. Key program elements were retained (e.g., provision of screening services, promotion of healthy lifestyle behaviors, and linkage to community resources), but a number of changes were incorporated into the program at that time due to shifts in populations, systems, and community needs. The current FOA reflects increased emphasis on improving access to clinical systems of care and increased emphasis on E:\FR\FM\25AUN1.SGM 25AUN1 50654 Federal Register / Vol. 79, No. 164 / Monday, August 25, 2014 / Notices leveraging existing resources in the community. Lifestyle interventions have also been reframed to include lifestyle programs (LSPs) and health coaching (HC) sessions, and MDE have been updated to capture information about risk reduction counseling and participants’ readiness to change. The current cooperative agreement also stresses monitoring and performance evaluation as key program dimensions. Additionally, more information is needed to augment that from previous evaluation efforts. CDC seeks to conduct a one-time, multi-component evaluation to assess the effectiveness of the program on programs, administered in the second and fourth program years; a Network Survey of WISEWOMAN awardees and partner organizations, also conducted in the second and fourth program years; and a one-time Site Visit to a subset of awardees across the second to fourth program years. During site visits, semistructured interviews will be conducted with WISEWOMAN staff members who serve in diverse roles and are positioned to provide a variety of perspectives on program implementation. OMB approval is requested for three years. Participation is voluntary and there are no costs to respondents other than their time. individual-, organizational-, and community-level outcomes. The indepth assessment is designed to complement the routine progress and MDE information already being collected from WISEWOMAN program awardees. The new data collection will focus on obtaining qualitative and quantitative information at the organizational and community levels about process and procedures implemented, and barriers, facilitators, and other contextual factors that affect program implementation and participant outcomes.

Proposed Project

    WISEWOMAN National Program Evaluation--New--National Center for 
Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion (NCCDPHP), Centers for 
Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

Background and Brief Description

    The CDC has supported the WISEWOMAN program (Well-Integrated 
Screening and Evaluation for Women Across the Nation) since 1995. The 
WISEWOMAN program is designed to serve low-income women ages 40-64 who 
have elevated risk factors for cardiovascular disease (CVD) and have no 
health insurance, or are underinsured for medical and preventive care 
services. Through the WISEWOMAN program, women have access to screening 
services for selected CVD risk factors such as elevated blood 
cholesterol, hypertension, and abnormal blood glucose levels; referrals 
to lifestyle programs; and referrals to medical care. WISEWOMAN 
participants must be co-enrolled in the CDC-sponsored National Breast 
and Cervical Cancer Early Detection Program (NBCCEDP).
    The WISEWOMAN program is administered through cooperative 
agreements with state, territorial, or tribal health departments. At 
present, approximately two-thirds of program funding is provided by CDC 
with the other one-third supplied by the state, territory, or tribal 
organization. Each WISEWOMAN awardee submits to CDC an annual progress 
report that describes program objectives and activities, and semi-
annual data reports (known as minimum data elements, or MDE) on the 
screening, assessment, and lifestyle program services offered to women 
who participate in the program (see WISEWOMAN Reporting System, OMB No. 
0920-0612, exp. 12/31/2016). Participant-level MDE are de-identified 
prior to transmission to CDC.
    In 2013, CDC released the fourth funding opportunity announcement 
(FOA) for the WISEWOMAN program (DP13-1302), which resulted in four-
year cooperative agreements with 22 state, territorial, and tribal 
health departments, including 5 new and 17 continuing awardees from the 
previous FOA. Key program elements were retained (e.g., provision of 
screening services, promotion of healthy lifestyle behaviors, and 
linkage to community resources), but a number of changes were 
incorporated into the program at that time due to shifts in 
populations, systems, and community needs. The current FOA reflects

leveraging existing resources in the community. Lifestyle interventions 
have also been reframed to include lifestyle programs (LSPs) and health 
coaching (HC) sessions, and MDE have been updated to capture 
information about risk reduction counseling and participants' readiness 
to change. The current cooperative agreement also stresses monitoring 
and performance evaluation as key program dimensions. Additionally, 
more information is needed to augment that from previous evaluation 
efforts.
    CDC seeks to conduct a one-time, multi-component evaluation to 
assess the effectiveness of the program on individual-, organizational-
, and community-level outcomes. The in-depth assessment is designed to 
complement the routine progress and MDE information already being 
collected from WISEWOMAN program awardees. The new data collection will 
focus on obtaining qualitative and quantitative information at the 
organizational and community levels about process and procedures 
implemented, and barriers, facilitators, and other contextual factors 
that affect program implementation and participant outcomes. Data 
collection activities will include a Program Survey with all WISEWOMAN 
awardee programs, administered in the second and fourth program years; 
a Network Survey of WISEWOMAN awardees and partner organizations, also 
conducted in the second and fourth program years; and a one-time Site 
Visit to a subset of awardees across the second to fourth program 
years. During site visits, semi-structured interviews will be conducted 
with WISEWOMAN staff members who serve in diverse roles and are 
positioned to provide a variety of perspectives on program 
implementation.
    OMB approval is requested for three years. Participation is 
voluntary and there are no costs to respondents other than their time.
