ESM 10.1 The percent of health care providers who report knowledge, behavior, and confidence change in adolescent health care after Adolescent Champion Model training. (Indiana)

Measure Status: Active

Evidence Level: No similar strategy found in the established evidence for this NPM. See similar ESMs (https://www.mchlibrary.org/evidence/state-esms-results.php?q=provider+training&NPM=10&State=&RBA_Category=&MCH_Pyramid=&Recipient=&Status=Active) for this NPM or search for other strategies or promising practices (https://www.mchevidence.org/tools/npm/10-adolescent-well-visit.php).

Measurement Quadrant: Quadrant 4: Measuring quality of effect (% of "is anyone better off")

Service Type: Public health services and systems level of pyramid

Essential Public Health Services: 8. Build and support a workforce

Service Recipient: Activities directed to professionals

Goal: By 2025, all providers trained in the Adolescent Champion Model will demonstrate a change in their knowledge, behavior, and confidence when caring, counseling, and connecting with adolescent patients.

Numerator: Number of providers who complete ACM training and report knowledge, behavior, and confidence change.

Denominator: Total providers who complete ACM training

Significance: During Indiana's needs assessment process, the community identified quality of healthcare and trusted healthcare as a priority. While adolescents are generally a healthy population, preventive visits are important to identify and educate about at-risk health conditions or behaviors. Preventive visits in adolescence are also beneficial for the long-term health benefits they can provide to individuals and ultimately, communities. By recruiting Indiana clinics to implement the University of Michigan's Adolescent Champion Model to further increase the quality of care provided to youth, we hope to impact the overall percentage of youth receiving a wellness visit in the past year. The adolescent Champion model is an 18-month process designed to drive health centers to become adolescent-centered. It is a multi-faceted intervention to address a health center's environment, policies, and practices to ensure that all aspects of a visit to the health center are youth-centered.

Data Sources and Data Issues: Internal program data from the Maternal and Child Health Adolescent Team and University of Michigan AHI Team

ESM 10.2 Percent of providers responding who agree or strongly agree that they have been able to provide care that better addresses the needs, preferences, and concerns of their teen patients because of the PATCH for Providers Program (Wisconsin)

Measure Status: Active

Evidence Level: No similar strategy found in the established evidence for this NPM. See similar ESMs (https://www.mchlibrary.org/evidence/state-esms-results.php?q=&NPM=10&State=&RBA_Category=&MCH_Pyramid=&Recipient=Activities+directed+to+professionals&Status=Active) for this NPM or search for other strategies or promising practices (https://www.mchevidence.org/tools/npm/10-adolescent-well-visit.php).

Measurement Quadrant: Quadrant 4: Measuring quality of effect (% of "is anyone better off")

Service Type: Public health services and systems level of pyramid

Essential Public Health Services: 8. Build and support a workforce

Service Recipient: Activities directed to professionals

Goal: 80% of providers trained who responding will agree or strongly agree that they have been able to provide care that better addresses the needs, preferences, and concerns of their teen patients because of the PATCH for Providers Program.

Numerator: Number of providers responding to a post-training survey who agree or strongly agree that they have been able to provide care that better addresses the needs, preferences, and concerns of their teen patients because of the PATCH for Providers Program

Denominator: Number of providers responding to the post-training survey

Significance: Training health care providers to address the needs, preferences, and concerns of their teen patients will encourage a more welcoming environment for adolescents in the health care setting. These trainings, provided and led by adolescents, give health care providers authentic, candid engagement with youth perspective, increasing provider self-efficacy to provide preventive medical services to adolescents.

Data Sources and Data Issues: PATCH Program; Acquiring this data will involve communication between the Title V Program and PATCH. No anticipated issues.

ESM 10.4 Number of trainers trained in the Olweus Bullying Prevention Program (Pennsylvania)

Measure Status: Active

Evidence Level: Strategy and ESM aligns with priority, however it is not in direct alignment with NPM (most aligned with NPM 9). See other ESMs for this NPM (https://www.mchlibrary.org/evidence/state-esms-results.php?q=&NPM=10&State=&RBA_Category=&MCH_Pyramid=&Recipient=&Status=Active) or find other NPM 10 professional-level strategies in MCHbest.

Measurement Quadrant: Quadrant 1: Measuring quantity of effort (counts and "yes/no" activities)

Service Type: Enabling services level of pyramid

Essential Public Health Services: 8. Build and support a workforce

Service Recipient: Activities directed to professionals

Goal: Increase the number of community-based organizations participating in a bullying awareness and prevention program

Numerator: Number of trainers trained in the Olweus Bullying Prevention Program

Denominator: N/A

Significance: According to the Bullying in US Schools 2014 Status Report using data from the Olweus Bullying Questionnaire, 17% of all students were involved in bullying by either being bullied, bullying others or both being bullied and bullying others. Bullying affects youth negatively in many ways. Youth who are bullied are more likely to experience depression and anxiety, changes in sleep and eating patterns and decreased academic achievement and school participation. Academic success has a direct impact on their employment prospects and future earnings potential, which impact health and access to health care in adulthood. Youth who bully others are more likely to experience alcohol and drug abuse in adolescence. This serious health problem can persist long after adolescence. LGBTQ youth and those perceived as LGBTQ are at an increased risk of being bullied. Bullied LGBTQ youth, or youth perceived as LGBTQ are more likely to skip school, smoke, use alcohol and drugs, or engage in other risky behaviors. Lesbian, gay or bisexual youth are more than twice as likely as their peers to be depressed and think about or attempt suicide.

Data Sources and Data Issues: Data collection and analysis will be performed by the vendor(s) selected by DOH to carry out the activities of the bullying program. It will be a grant deliverable as required by the work statement and reported to DOH via quarterly reports.

ESM 10.8 Number of substance use and brain injury professionals receiving brain injury and opioid training  (Pennsylvania)

Measure Status: Active

Evidence Level: Strategy and ESM aligns with priority; however it is not in direct alignment with NPM (most aligned with NPM 7). See other ESMs for this NPM (https://www.mchlibrary.org/evidence/state-esms-results.php?q=&NPM=10&State=&RBA_Category=&MCH_Pyramid=&Recipient=&Status=Active) or find other NPM 10 provider-level strategies in MCHbest.

Measurement Quadrant: Quadrant 4: Measuring quality of effect (% of "is anyone better off")

Service Type: Public health services and systems level of pyramid

Essential Public Health Services: 8. Build and support a workforce

Service Recipient: Activities directed to professionals

Goal: Annually increase the number of substance use and brain injury professionals receiving brain injury and opioid training

Numerator: The number of substance use and brain injury professionals receiving evidence based or evidence informed brain injury and opioid training

Denominator: N/A

Significance: The BFH offers brain injury and opioid training to professionals within the brain injury or substance use field. The BFH partnered with the Brain Injury Association of PA to develop training curriculum. Research has shown that when an individual overdoses from substances, the lack of oxygen to the brain can cause brain injury. Also, individuals who have brain injury are more vulnerable to becoming addicted to opioids. The intent of the training is to make professionals in the brain injury and substance use fields aware of the correlation between brain injury and substance use as well as provide resource information that may be used for the clientele they serve.

Data Sources and Data Issues: Data will be collected through enrollment and attendance records provided by the training provider.
