WDC Strategies Assessment/ Selection Tools
The assessment tools are designed for Part A grantees to select Strategies Guided by Best Practice that are relevant to their work in engaging diverse communities in their TPP effort. The information gathered will inform the WDC strategies to be included in their Work and Evaluation plans and subsequently in the Performance Measure Reporting Tool (PMRT). The use of these tools is optional. Technical assistance on the use of these tools and how to integrate the Strategies into Work and Evaluation Plans are provided by JSI upon request.
- Assessment Tool for Clinic Partners
This tool refers to strategies #27-37 and indicates where in the “process” each clinic partner is in implementation of the “clinic specific” WDC strategies.
- Assessment Tool for Implementation Partners
This tool refers to strategies #19-26 and indicates where in the “process” each implementation partner is in the implementation of “evidence-based program specific” WDC strategies.
- Assessment Tool for Part A Grantees
This tool uses the information gathered by the clinic and implementation partner assessment tools to inform selection of the WDC strategies to be included in your Work and Evaluation plans, and in the PMRT to be submitted to the CDC
- Planning Questions for Implementation of Strategies
This handout demonstrates how to use the Who-What-How-Where-When approach to help plan specific action steps to implement selected WDC ‘strategies guided by best practice’.

This handout helps to simplify the 37 WDC ‘strategies guided by best practice’ by showing how they reflect just a few key underlying themes, and by indicating which strategies overlap with others, so that programs implementing one of them are well on their way to implementing others.
WDC Strategies Documentation/Evaluation Tools

Technical assistance on the use of these tools and how to integrate the Strategies into Work and Evaluation Plans are provided by JSI upon request.
