Presentation Transcript


1. 1 State Epidemiological Outcomes Workgroup (SEOW) Bring systematic, analytical thinking to understanding the causes and consequences of substance use to effectively and efficiently use prevention resources. 3 year contract funded by SAMHSA/CSAP to establish and manage an Epidemiological Workgroup to examine alcohol, tobacco and other drug-related data for prevention Purpose of the SEOW: Bring systematic, analytical thinking to understanding the causes and consequences of the use of alcohol, tobacco and other drugs. Use data in decision making in resource allocation, strategy selection, and monitoring. Improve access of decision makers to information that will help them make informed decisions Drive effective and efficient use of prevention resources.3 year contract funded by SAMHSA/CSAP to establish and manage an Epidemiological Workgroup to examine alcohol, tobacco and other drug-related data for prevention Purpose of the SEOW: Bring systematic, analytical thinking to understanding the causes and consequences of the use of alcohol, tobacco and other drugs.

3. 3 SEOW Key Concepts

5. 5 Public Health Approach Population-based Focuses on preventing health problems and promoting healthy living for whole groups of people (e.g. age groups, communities)

6. 6 Epidemiological Data Epidemiological data describes substance use and the consequences of substance use within and across populations What are the consequences of drug use What substances are being used? By whom? How? Where? Epidemiology is the study of the distribution and determinants of health-related events in populations Epidemiology is the study of the distribution and determinants of health-related events in populations

9. 9 Step 2: Epi Profile Starting small Limiting the data to what is essential Using existing data Focus on completing initial assessment with existing data to see what we learn before developing new data collection mechanisms Identifying priorities We can build on efforts later State set of data indicators on substance-related problems State indicators Subset for county data books Statewide Assessment Report/Epidemiological Profile Recommendations to SPF SIG Prevention Plan Target areas, priorities Resource allocations State set of data indicators on substance-related problems State indicators Subset for county data books Statewide Assessment Report/Epidemiological Profile Recommendations to SPF SIG Prevention Plan Target areas, priorities Resource allocations

10. 10 Step 3: Fact Sheets Focusing on important issues and populations A few tight points on one two-sided page Providing the basic facts about the issue Answering “Why do I care”? Showing the costs and impacts Sharing what can be done Next steps, a plan of action, resource links State set of data indicators on substance-related problems State indicators Subset for county data books Statewide Assessment Report/Epidemiological Profile Recommendations to SPF SIG Prevention Plan Target areas, priorities Resource allocations State set of data indicators on substance-related problems State indicators Subset for county data books Statewide Assessment Report/Epidemiological Profile Recommendations to SPF SIG Prevention Plan Target areas, priorities Resource allocations

11. 11 Consequence Example Oregon has the 4th highest rate of alcohol-induced deaths in U.S. 2 times more males die from alcohol-induced deaths than females 35 to 44 years-5th leading cause of death 45 to 54 years-4th leading cause of death 55 to 64 years-3rd leading cause of death

12. 12 Alcohol –induced deaths in Oregon

13. 13

14. 14 Current alcohol use

15. 15 Binge alcohol use

16. 16 Heavy alcohol use

17. 17 Risk and Protective/Causal Factors Availability Price Promotion Community Norms Enforcement of Policies and Norms Individual factors

18. 18 Choosing Strategies Identify and describe the problem Analyze consumption pattern that leads to problem Understand causal factors that lead to consumption pattern and/or directly to problem Select strategy(s) known to address causal factor(s) Choose specific program, policy or activity within strategy arena
