  • Description:
    Washington State's Healthy Communities pilot projects were developed to test approaches and recommendations of the Washington State Nutrition and Physical Activity Plan and to provide a statewide model for implementation. The Healthy Communities program included plans for ongoing process evaluation to ensure implementation. Two years into the first project, however, the evaluation team recognized that data for evaluation were inadequate to explain the experiences of the pilot community partnership. The team sought a framework through which to better understand how the community partnership functioned, including what worked well and how guidance and technical assistance could best be provided. The evaluation team identified the community health governance model of Lasker and Weiss through a literature search and applied this model to existing Healthy Communities project evaluation data. The team also designed a new survey tool based on the model and used it in the second pilot community. The new tool provides feedback to community partners to help guide project implementation and tests the applicability of a theoretical model to public health practice.
