Proposed Projects: Factors and Strategies that are Effective in Establishing Policy and Environmental Interventions Designed to Promote Good Nutrition and Physical Activity—New—The National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion (NCCDPHP), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), proposes to conduct a study to determine what is needed to implement and sustain policy and environmental interventions to promote physical activity and good nutrition for cardiovascular health. Policy and environmental intervention approaches to promoting physical activity and good nutrition are a new paradigm shift for intervention activities, therefore, research is required to determine what is needed to implement and sustain these types of interventions.
The proposed study will be conducted in three phases. Phase 1 Background Information: A review will be conducted of the literature of national conferences to identify experts Start Printed Page 17715in the field of policy and environmental interventions to promote physical activity and good nutrition. Phase 2 Expert Interviews: State representatives, recognized experts, and others will be contacted via telephone to gather detailed information on both successful and promising environmental and policy interventions. Phase 3 Key Informant Interviews: Key informant interviews will be conducted with selected interventions and programs that were indicated in Phases 1 and 2 to identify activities, methods, and lessons learned for their successful implementation. We will summarize and evaluate interview results and disseminate to cardiovascular health funded States to assist in designing policy and environmental interventions to promote physical activity and good nutrition.
The total cost estimate is $ 16,551 over a three-month period.
