    Welcome to the Well-Integrated Screening and Evaluation for Women Across the Nation (WISEWOMAN) Best Practices Toolkit. The toolkit provides guidance, resources, and technical tools to help WISEWOMAN programs serve women. The described practices address recruitment and engagement of program participants, lifestyle intervention delivery, facilitation and maintenance of behavior change, and participant retention in the WISEWOMAN program. The toolkit also lists strategies to assist WISEWOMAN projects in recruiting and retaining local sites and in facilitating local site adoption of the described practices.

    The toolkit is a compendium of best program practices identified through in-depth case studies with selected WISEWOMAN projects. The methods used to identify best practices are outlined in Chapter I. The toolkit is meant as a reference guide from which projects and local sites can select practices that might be useful in their states or tribal organizations. The writers recognize that the practices included in this toolkit might not be effective in all settings; therefore, the toolkit is not meant to dictate practices that all projects should use.

    This toolkit was developed by Mathematica Policy Research, Inc., under contract number 200-2001-00122, with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Division for Heart Disease and Stroke Prevention, WISEWOMAN Program.
