Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is the leading of cause of death for
women. WISEWOMAN (Well-Integrated Screening and Evaluation for Women
Across the Nation) is a public health CVD risk reduction program in 12
states. Low-income women (aged 40-64 years) are screened for CVD risk
factors, referred, and offered four healthy eating and physical activity
interventions, which are derived from the Transtheoretical Model and
selected cognitive constructs. The purpose of this process evaluation
research was to examine: (a) satisfaction with the South Dakota WISEWOMAN
program, (b) perception of the interventions, (c) the process of health
behavior change, and (d) the pros and cons to behavior change. A four-page
survey was pilot-tested, revised, then mailed and delivered to 1904
enrollees. Follow-up mailing occurred after 12 weeks. There were 789
surveys returned with usable data (41.4% response). Age ranged from 27-65
years (mean 47.27 plus or minus 5.01), 88.2% were Caucasian and 8.1% were American
Indian. Of respondents, 599 received at least one counseling session
(range 1-7). The mean score for satisfaction with counseling was
21.34 plus or minus 2.43 (high ceiling score=24.0). The mean score for program
satisfaction was 10.69 plus or minus 1.21 (high ceiling score=12.0). There was 94%
agreement that the program resources were satisfactory. Respondents were
not eating recommended daily fruit and vegetable servings but were meeting
daily dairy servings. Physical activity increased from baseline. There
were more counseling respondents than no counseling respondents in the
action and maintenance stages of healthy eating and activity. Social
support for eating healthy and activity was similar for respondents who
received some or no counseling. Self-efficacy, knowledge and perceived
benefits of healthy eating and activity were higher for respondents who
received counseling. Feeling good, health, weight control and family were
major pros to behavior change. Time was the major con. Follow-up with
WISEWOMAN participants is needed to examine maintenance of health behavior
change.
