In 1993, Congress authorized the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to establish the Well-Integrated Screening and Evaluation for Women Across the Nation (WISEWOMAN) Program to extend services provided to women as part of the National Breast and Cervical Cancer Early Detection Program (NBCCEDP). WISEWOMAN provides NBCCEDP participants with access to additional preventive health services, including screenings for cardiovascular disease risk factors, referrals for medical evaluation, health coaching, and lifestyle programs.
In 2013, the CDC released Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) DP13-1302, which began a new 4-year cooperative agreement with 19 state and two tribal organizations. In 2014, CDC funded one additional state. In a cooperative agreement, CDC and grantees have a shared responsibility for successfully implementing the program and meeting program outcomes. This document is designed to provide WISEWOMAN grantees guidance and resources on developing, implementing, and evaluating a WISEWOMAN Program under this FOA.
CDC will have substantial involvement with grantees through a variety of methods, including developing resources, providing ongoing guidance, and disseminating relevant research findings and public health recommendations. Through grantee meetings and webinars, CDC will provide (1) an orientation to the WISEWOMAN Program, (2) professional development on cardiovascular disease prevention, health promotion, and other relevant content, and (3) forums for grantees to share their expertise and experience.
CDC will monitor and support grantees’ progress toward achieving the outcomes of this cooperative agreement through (1) monthly, tailored technical assistance calls with CDC Project Officers, (2) periodic site visits by CDC Project Officers and other specialists as needed (e.g., data team members, health scientists, evaluation specialists), (3) analyses of WISEWOMAN minimum data elements, and (4) review of annual performance reports, work plans, budgets, key program activities, policies, and procedures.
The priority of the WISEWOMAN Program under this FOA is risk reduction, with a focus on hypertension control. This focus aligns with and supports Million Hearts®, a national initiative to prevent 1 million heart attacks and strokes by 2017 (http://millionhearts.hhs.gov). Women receive risk reduction counseling and healthy behavior support options to support risk reduction.
The three major categories of healthy behavior support options include:
• Evidence-based lifestyle programs delivered through community-based organizations
• Health coaching delivered either in the health care setting or through community- based organizations
• Referrals to community-based resources that support healthy behaviors
