ESM 14.2.2 Number of ambassadors recruited (Tennessee)

Measure Status: Active

Evidence Level:

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

Service Type: Systems level of pyramid

Essential Public Health Services: 4. Support and mobilize partners

Service Recipient: Activities related to systems-building

Goal: Decrease tobacco use among youth through peer-to-peer intervention and youth advocates for anti-tobacco policy.

Numerator: Number of ambassadors recruited

Denominator: Count

Significance:

Data Sources and Data Issues: Youth who are recruited to serve as TNSTRONG ambassadors represent an important component of the TCP’s efforts to reach and influence local youth. Ambassadors are often leaders within their schools and communities and are trained on peer-to-peer intervention and policy change. The number of ambassadors recruited will be tracked annually and will consist of the total number of ambassadors inclusive of those in their second year (of a two year cycle).

Year: 2021

Unit Type: 26, Unit Number: Tobacco Control Program data

ESM 14.2.4 Number of youth who attend the state anti-tobacco conference trainings (Tennessee)

Measure Status: Active

Evidence Level: There is limited research on this strategy related to this NPM. However, there is a growing body of evidence supporting this strategy related to other NPMs. In adapting this strategy, you may want to start with a pilot group, collect data, and evaluate to ensure impact with this topic area and your population group(s).

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

Service Type: Systems level of pyramid

Essential Public Health Services: 4. Support and mobilize partners

Service Recipient: Activities directed to families/children/youth

Goal: Decrease tobacco use among youth through peer-to-peer intervention and youth advocates for anti-tobacco policy.

Numerator: Youth attendees at annual TNSTRONG conference/trainings

Denominator:

Significance: TNSTRONG attendees, similar to ambassadors, are trained on peer-to-peer interventions and policy change, and are an essential component to reaching and influencing youth throughout Tennessee. TNSTRONG youth attendees are defined as school-aged individuals who attend the TNSTRONG event in their capacity as students (as opposed to presenters or chaperones).

Data Sources and Data Issues: Tobacco Control Program - TNSTRONG Attendee Registration system

Year: 2021

Unit Type: Count, Unit Number: 450

ESM 14.2.7 Number of anti-tobacco social media posts (Tennessee)

Measure Status: Active

Evidence Level: There is limited research in the evidence base for this NPM to support this strategy.

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

Service Type: Enabling services level of pyramid

Essential Public Health Services: 3. Inform and educate the public

Service Recipient: Activities directed to families/children/youth

Goal: To decrease youth tobacco use.

Numerator: Number of social media posts to TDH and TNSTRONG social media accounts

Social media’s influence and pervasiveness among adolescents enables TUPCP and youth advocates to reach the target population more effectively.

Year: 2021

Unit Type: 24, Unit Number: TDH Communications Office will track the number of anti-tobacco focused social media posts via Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram using designated hashtags.
