Proposed Project: Multidisciplinary Health Care Models for Women Sustainability Assessment Survey—OMB No. 0990-NEW-Office of the Secretary/Office on Women's Health (OWH).

Abstract: The goal of this assessment is to identify and measure the key components of sustainability of federally funded programs. Specifically, this assessment will examine the extent to which organizations previously funded under OWH's Multidisciplinary Health Care Models for Women (MHMW) effort have sustained or enhanced the core components of the program after OWH funding ended, and identify factors that have facilitated or inhibited sustainability at MHMW program sites.

This assessment is designed to collect data from 48 MHMW program sites through four methods: (1) Abstraction of administrative data from grant and contract documents to establish a baseline understanding of each site, (2) a Web-based survey of key program staff at each site to determine the extent to which the five core components were implemented, (3) key informant interviews with core program staff, and/or other types of staff as necessary, to better understand the factors that influenced implementation and sustainability, and (4) in-person visits to 12 sites to collect in-depth information from additional types of staff, community partners, and clients. OWH is seeking approval from the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for the Web-based survey and the key informant interviews.
