Transcript of The Minimum Data Set

1994 the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) was passed.

As part of VAWA, the Rape Prevention Education (RPE) program was established at the Center for Disease Control (CDC).

The RPE program seeks to develop and strengthen sexual violence prevention efforts at the local, state, and national level.

There are 9 recipients of RPE funding in NC.

RCC is one of them!
Primary Prevention
The Public Health model of primary prevention—stopping violence before it begins—is the cornerstone of the RPE program.
RPE Principles
• Incorporating behavior and social change theories into prevention programs so that behavior patterns, cultural values, and norms contributing to sexual violence will change over time

• Analyzing state and community data, such as health and safety data, to inform program decisions and monitor trends
RPE Principles
• Preventing first-time occurrence of sexual violence

• Reducing risk factors and enhancing protective factors linked to sexual violence perpetration and victimization

• Using the best available evidence when planning, implementing, and evaluating prevention programs;
Until now...
There has not been an opportunity to collect evaluation data across the 9 RPE programs across the state of NC because of three constraints:
Blame the Feds.
How do they do it!?
The Minimum Data Set
In the Beginning...
Evaluating prevention efforts and using the results to improve future program plans!
Why we (you) are all here!
Me! Liz Constantinou, RPE Coordinator
Emmy Gibson, Advocate/Educator
Jay Tyszka, RPE BSW Intern Educator
Programs have different priority populations (elementary, middle, high school, college, school staff & teachers, parents etc)
Each program designs it’s own prevention strategy based on priority population & community assessment.

(ie each program uses different curricula focusing on different topics)
Each program develops it’s own evaluation plan including specific measures, methods & foci.
The RPE program staff and consultants (remember the flow chart?) decided to develop a
minimum data set
that would enable the program to compare some measures across programs
in order to share a picture of what the NC RPE program as a whole has accomplished with federal funding.
We use Shifting Boundaries as well as our Sexual Violence Prevention Task Force
Your job...
As valued members of the community, stakeholders & task force members we ask you to help us decide how we should be evaluating our programming. IE what minimum data set we should be gathering.
Our grantors have given us a table of objectives and themes that they developed using commonalities found across existing evaluation methods within current RPE programs in NC.

Each objective and theme has a few different options of how to achieve said objective.
We will go through each objective & subsequent options.

As we go through we will ask you to cast your vote for which option you think is best.

There are no right or wrong answers. Simply select your answer based on your knowledge, experience, expertise, background etc.
After wards we will compile and rank the data and send it to the Sexual Violence Prevention Program Evaluator and she will compile our results along with the results of all the other RPE funded agencies in NC in order to develop the Minimum Data Set!
The Minimum Data Set will be piloted in January 2017 with the hopes of assessing outcomes in a standardized way across all RPE funded programs in NC.
Thank you all very much for taking the time out of your day to be here. Your presence and contributions show your commitment to ending sexual violence in our community.
Let's begin!
