Call for Participation: Evaluation of Remote Evidence-Based Falls Prevention and CDSME Programs

November 5, 2021

Evidence-Based Leadership Collaborative

The Evidence-Based Leadership Collaborative (EBLC) is partnering with ACL, CDC, and partners and policymakers from around the country to conduct a national evaluation of the implementation and effectiveness of remote Falls Prevention and Chronic Disease Self-Management Education (CDSME) programs. 
Over the last year and a half, the Aging and Disability Network and their partners have been delivering evidence-based Falls Prevention and CDSME programs remotely (i.e., video conferencing, phone) in response to the COVID-19 pandemic and the need to continue offering these essential programs that improve the health and wellbeing of older adults. These delivery methods have created new ways to enhance program reach. We need to better understand how they are working and if they are as effective as programs delivered in-person. 

The survey itself is being conducted by the EBLC. Organizations offering the programs below are being invited to participate in this evaluation study through the end of the year. The results of the evaluation will be widely disseminated. Program participants will also receive a gift card from the EBLC for completing the surveys.

  • Chronic Disease Self-Management Program (CDSMP) via video-conferencing.
  • Chronic Pain Self-Management Program (CPSMP) via telephone and toolkit.
  • Diabetes Self-Management Program (DSMP) via video-conferencing.
  • EnhanceFitness via video-conferencing.
  • HealthyIDEAS via phone.
  • HomeMeds via phone.
  • Walk with Ease via self-directed enhanced toolkit.

If interested, please contact Elspeth Rensema with questions or to schedule a time to talk.
