  • Improving the use of evidence in public health policy development,
           enactment and implementation: a multiple-case study
    • Authors: McGinty E; Siddiqi S, Linden S, et al.
      Pages: 129 - 144
      Abstract: Many of the policies shown to benefit the public’s health in research studies are never widely implemented. We conducted a qualitative and exploratory multiple-case study of three U.S. academic research-policy translation initiatives that resulted in the development, enactment and/or implementation of evidence-based policies to address public health issues: gun policy (Case 1); opioid policy (Case 2) and drug control policy (Case 3). We conducted semi-structured qualitative interviews with 25 key stakeholders involved in the three cases and analysed transcripts using a hybrid a priori and data-driven approach. Across cases, participants identified four key processes that should be included in research-policy translation initiatives: stakeholder engagement, consensus-building, long-term coalition engagement and use of effective knowledge brokers. Participants perceived differences in how the structure of and activities within each initiative facilitated these processes. For example, participants perceived the gun policy initiative, which included large-scale policy dissemination strategies such as state forums where research experts interacted with state policymakers and advocates, as more effective at long-term coalition engagement than the other two initiatives. Study results suggest concrete and actionable academic research-policy strategies that have the potential for widespread adoption by universities or other organizations.

  • Improving health communication with photographic images that increase
           identification in three minority populations
    • Authors: Buller M; Bettinghaus E, Fluharty L, et al.
      Pages: 145 - 158
      Abstract: The homophily principle, that perceived similarities among people produce positive reactions, is a cross-cultural, global phenomenon. This study aimed to test the prediction that photographs that depict models similar to the target population improve health communication by increasing perceived identification in three racial/ethnic populations. Three separate nationally representative stratified samples (n = 1638) of African American, Hispanic and Native American adults were drawn from GfK’s Knowledge Panel®. Participants read a message advocating increased physical activity and improved diets and completed measures on behavioral intentions, outcome and self-efficacy expectations and identification. The message contained photographs from a stock photograph service or photographs created for the research project to match the three minority populations, Real Health Photos (RHP). Structural equation modeling confirmed the theoretical hypothesis that RHP which matched the minority population increased behavioral intentions and was mediated by identification (P < 0.05) in all three racial/ethnic minority samples. Messages with only half of the matched RHP images had these same positive indirect effects among African Americans and Hispanics (P < 0.05). The impact of matching visual images in health messages to recipients derived from identification with the characters in images. Homophily and identification are hardwired, evolutionary, biological phenomena that should be capitalized on health educators with minority populations.

  • The improvement of dietary behaviors among Iranian adolescent girls: a
           theory-based randomized controlled trial
    • Authors: Ghasab Shirazi M; Kazemi A, Kelishadi R, et al.
      Pages: 159 - 172
      Abstract: This study aims to evaluate the impact of a social cognitive theory (SCT)-based intervention on dietary behaviors and behavioral determinants. A randomized controlled trial was conducted with 230 adolescent girls (13–15 years old) in the intervention (n=115), and control group (n = 115), in Isfahan, Iran. Interventions were focused on changing SCT determinants including, knowledge, self-efficacy, intention, situation, self-regulation, social support, outcome expectations and expectancies. The intervention program included multicomponent intervention packages for adolescents, parents and teachers. A self-report questionnaire was used to assess dietary behaviors and SCT determinants at 3- and 6-month follow-ups. At 3- and 6-month follow-ups, differences between the intervention and control groups were reported in terms of the changes in all behavioral determinants and dietary behaviors. The changes in most behavioral determinants were significantly associated with the changes in dietary behaviors. The results showed that the nutrition education intervention based on SCT is effective in improving adolescents’ dietary behaviors but dietary behaviors of adolescents in this study not yet reached to ideal status.

  • Church leaders’ barriers and facilitators before and after implementing
           a physical activity and nutrition intervention
    • Authors: Bernhart J; Dunn C, Wilcox S, et al.
      Pages: 188 - 199
      Abstract: Faith-based health promotion programs have been effective in increasing healthy eating (HE) and physical activity (PA). Very few reports exist regarding church leaders’ anticipated and experienced barriers and facilitators to program implementation. Pastors (n = 38, 70%) and program coordinators (n = 54, 100%) from churches (N = 54) who attended a program training answered open-ended questions about anticipated barriers and facilitators to implementing the HE and PA parts of the Faith, Activity, and Nutrition (FAN) program. Twelve months later, pastors (n = 49, 92%) and coordinators (n = 53, 98%) answered analogous questions about their experienced barriers and facilitators to implementing the HE and PA parts of the FAN program. Responses were coded using thematic analysis. Similar themes appeared at baseline and follow-up for anticipated and experienced barriers and facilitators. The most common barriers were no anticipated barriers, resistance to change, church characteristics, and lack of participation/motivation. The most common facilitators were internal support, leadership, and communication. Few differences were found between anticipated and experienced barriers and facilitators. Understanding these perspectives, particularly overcoming resistance to change and church characteristics through strong leadership and internal support from church leaders, will improve future program development, resources, and technical assistance in faith-based and non-faith-based communities alike.

  • Influencing cardiovascular health habits in the rural, deep south: results
           of a cluster randomized trial
    • Authors: Abbott L; Slate E, Lemacks J.
      Pages: 200 - 208
      Abstract: Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is a major cause of death among people living in the United States. Populations, especially minorities, living in the rural South are disproportionately affected by CVD and have greater CVD risk, morbidity and mortality. Culturally relevant cardiovascular health programs implemented in rural community settings can potentially reduce CVD risk and facilitate health behavior modification. The purpose of this study was to examine the effects of a cardiovascular health promotion intervention on the health habits of a group of rural African American adults. The study had a cluster randomized controlled trial design involving 12 rural churches that served as statistical clusters. From the churches (n = 6) randomized to the intervention group, 115 participants were enrolled, received the 6-week health program and completed pretest–posttest measures. The 114 participants from the control group churches (n = 6) did not receive the health program and completed the same pretest–posttest measures. The linear mixed model was used to compare group differences from pretest to posttest. The educational health intervention positively influenced select dietary and confidence factors that may contribute toward CVD risk reduction.

  • Evaluation of a self-management patient education programme for
           fibromyalgia—results of a cluster-RCT in inpatient rehabilitation
    • Authors: Musekamp G; Gerlich C, Ehlebracht-König I, et al.
      Pages: 209 - 222
      Abstract: The objective was to evaluate the effectiveness of a self-management patient education programme for fibromyalgia syndrome (FMS) as compared with usual care education in inpatient rehabilitation. In a multicentre cluster-randomized controlled trial, 583 inpatients in 3 rehabilitation centres received an advanced self-management patient education programme or usual care education. Patients completed questionnaires at admission, discharge and after 6 and 12 months. Primary outcomes were disease- and treatment-specific knowledge at discharge, and self-management-competencies after 6 months. Secondary outcomes included satisfaction, attitudes, coping competencies, psychological distress and health impairment. We found a medium-sized effect on disease- and treatment-specific knowledge at discharge (P < 0.05, Cohen’s d = 0.45, 95% CI = 0.27–0.63), and small effects for subjective knowledge, pain-related control, self-monitoring and insight, communication about disease, action planning for physical activity and treatment satisfaction (all P < 0.05). Only the effect on knowledge persisted for 6 and 12 months. This advanced education programme seemed to be more effective in the short term than usual education. However, intermediate- and long-term effects did not emerge. While superior long-term effects on knowledge as well as short-term effects on self-management skills may suggest implementation, additional long-term effects on other patient-relevant outcomes would be desirable.

  • Implementation and enforcement of smoke-free policies in public housing
    • Authors: Kegler M; Lea J, Lebow-Skelley E, et al.
      Pages: 234 - 246
      Abstract: Smoke-free policies such as those required by the US Department of Housing and Urban Development have the potential to reduce persistent income-related disparities in secondhand smoke exposure. To understand the implementation and enforcement process, as well as barriers and facilitators to compliance and enforcement, we conducted semi-structured interviews (n=37) with representatives from 23 Public Housing Authorities (PHAs) with some level of smoking restriction in place, along with residents from 14 of these PHAs, from January to August 2016. Residents were typically notified of the new policy through group meetings, new resident orientations and/or one-on-one discussions during lease renewal or annual recertification. Timing of implementation varied, with advanced notice of 6 months or a year most common. Enforcement typically involved a series of verbal and/or written warnings, followed by written notice of lease violation, and eventual notice of lease termination and/or eviction. Challenges in enforcement were generally classified as monitoring difficulties or legal concerns. Characterizing current practices (e.g. advance notice, clear communication of escalating consequences, cessation support and concrete evidence of violation) from early adopters sets the stage for identifying best practices and helps to ensure successful and fair implementation of smoke-free policies in subsidized housing.

  • Youth generated prevention messages about electronic cigarettes
    • Authors: Cavallo D; Kong G, Ells D, et al.
      Pages: 247 - 256
      Abstract: Rates of e-cigarette use are high among youth, and there is little known about the long-term health effects of e-cigarettes. Since peer influence is a powerful determinant of tobacco use, we aimed to identify message themes about e-cigarettes that youth would use to encourage or discourage peers from using e-cigarettes. We conducted 10 focus groups (N = 69) with non-smokers and smokers from one middle school, high school and college in Connecticut. Participants engaged in a discussion about e-cigarettes, and each participant created one written message to encourage e-cigarette use and one to discourage use among peers. We content-analyzed the messages and identified three main themes and 12 encouraging and discouraging sub-themes. Encouraging themes included health benefits of e-cigarettes relative to cigarettes, attractive product characteristics (e.g. flavors) and social advantages (e.g. positive social image) of using e-cigarettes. Discouraging messages included health risks of e-cigarettes relative to cigarettes, unattractive product characteristics (e.g. cost) and social disadvantages (e.g. negative social image of using an e-cigarette). Overall, there were no differences by sex, age group or smoking status in generation of encouraging and discouraging message themes. This study identified youth-generated themes that may aid in e-cigarette prevention among youth.

  • The impact of a theory-based web-intervention on the intention to use
           prescription drugs for non-medical purposes among college students: a
           randomized controlled trial
    • Authors: Arabyat R; Borrego M, Hamidovic A, et al.
      Pages: 173 - 187
      Abstract: The non-medical use of prescription drugs (NMUPD) among college students is escalating at an alarming rate. A limited number of studies have utilized a theoretical framework to influence this behavior. To utilize the reasoned-action approach theory to design and evaluate a web-based intervention to influence students’ attitudes, perceived norms (PNs), perceived behavioral control (PBC) and intentions toward NMUPD. Using a two-group post-test only controlled trial, students were randomized to view either a general health website or a web-based intervention focused on NMUPD. The intervention was presented in multiple sections to address each component of the reasoned-action approach. Subsequently, respondents completed a web-survey. Independent t-tests were used to compare responses between the two groups. Of 391 respondents, 112 (28.9%) students indicated previous NMUPD. The intervention group had significantly (P = 0.04) more negative attitudes toward NMUPD. No significant differences were found in PNs (P = 0.11), PBC (P = 0.68) or intentions to NMUPD (P = 0.97). The intervention was successful in changing attitudes toward NMUPD. Targeting the intervention toward college students regardless of previous experiences of NMUPD might have led to insufficiency of the intervention to influence intentions. Additional research is needed to improve the intervention dissemination and utilization.

  • Evaluation of a training aimed at building capacity for outreaching to men
           who have sex with men and transgender women in Indonesia
    • Authors: Nugroho A; Coulter R, Erasmus V, et al.
      Pages: 223 - 233
      Abstract: Implementers of outreach program in Indonesia often provide formal training for their outreach workers (OWs) only at the startup. We believe continuous training can be provided by experienced OWs at any time if an appropriate training package is available. Using a one-group pre-test–post-test study design; we developed, implemented and evaluated an OW-informed training program aimed at increasing OWs’ knowledge and skills for outreaching to men who have sex with men and transgender women. We analyzed longitudinal data from 75 OWs from 7 Indonesian cities using one-way within-subjects ANOVA to examine the effects of the training program on participants’ knowledge and perceived skills over time Average overall knowledge among participants increased from pre-test to immediate post-test (P < 0.001) and from pre-test to 2-month post-test (P < 0.001), especially in basic human immunodeficiency virus and sexual transmitted infections; condoms and lubricants; sexual and reproductive health and rights; sexual orientation and gender identity and expression; and stages of behavior change. Average overall perceived skills increased significantly from pre-test to 2-month post-test (P = 0.018), especially in creating innovative outreach approaches; building effective teamwork; and coordinating with healthcare providers. This training package increased knowledge and perceived skills among OWs. Thus, if consistently applied, it could help maintaining quality of the outreach program.
