1 UNDERSTANDING THE SC CAST LOGIC MODELS CAST Academy, Nov. 4, 2010

2 South Carolina Community Action for a Safer Tomorrow (CAST) Environmental Logic Model: DUI Traffic Crashes Consumption Pattern Risk Factors & Underlying Conditions Environmental Strategies Social norms accepting and/or encouraging use Insufficient enforcement of laws Easy social access Low or discount pricing Over-service to intoxicated patrons Insufficient laws and policies DUI traffic crashes High-visibility best practice enforcement operations Adjudication systems enhancement Merchant education Restrictions on alcohol price/promotion Social event monitoring & enforcement Community mobilization for policy change Consequence Limited transportation options Increase transportation options The SC rate of 12.1 alcohol- related vehicle deaths per 100,000 people is almost twice the national rate Almost half of SC fatal motor vehicle accidents involve alcohol Drinking to the point of impairment Lack of identification of problem behaviors Improved screening & referral systems Community media advocacy Last updated 8/6/10

3 South Carolina Community Action for a Safer Tomorrow (CAST) Environmental Logic Model: Underage Drinking Consumption Pattern Risk Factors & Underlying Conditions Environmental Strategies Social norms accepting and/or encouraging use Insufficient enforcement of laws Easy social access Inappropriate promotion of use Low or discount pricing Insufficient enforcement of school policies Easy retail access Lack of identification of early problem behaviors Underage Drinking Social event monitoring & enforcement High-visibility best practice enforcement operations Adjudication systems enhancement Merchant education Alcohol advertising restrictions Increase product price Model school policies w/ enforcement Improved screening & referral systems Insufficient laws and policies Community mobilization for policy change 35% of SC high school students drink 18% of SC high school students drank 5 or more drinks on one occasion in the past two week 1 in 10 SC high school students drove after drinking in the past month Community media advocacy Last updated 8/6/10

4 Where did these logic models come from?  Reviewed models from other states  Took what we liked  Changed a great deal  Staff brainstorm of any and all environmental factors that influence UD or DUI  Reviewed by:  Evaluation team  SEOW  WEB  Governor’s Council  Key partners (e.g., Office of Highway Safety)

5 Are they “perfect”?  Probably not  And they are not final either  We welcome your feedback

6 Most Importantly...  These 2 “1-page” diagrams are NOT the whole model  You must have the Contributing Local Factors (CLFs) to have the full logic model  The one-pager is like a pretty cover page  Found on “A Guide for Measuring Risk Factors and Local Conditions in Your Community”  The Risk Factors & Underlying Conditions boxes on the one-pagers are like buckets, but it’s what is inside (CLFs) that matters

7 Why focus on CLFs?  Risk factor headings can (and do) mean a lot of different things  Risk factors can’t be assessed as a whole (Step 1)  Different CLFs suggest different strategies (Step 3)  Different CLFs need to be tracked differently (Step 5)

8

9 Assessing CLFs  In the “guide,” we’ve tried to help match methods to CLFs  Sample tools we’ve developed are based on that approach  BUT you should do your own thinking on this  Are there better ways for you to measure some CLFs?  Do the sample tools get at all the relevant CLFs?  Are we covering every relevant CLF with some collection method?  Make this process your own; make it work for you

10 More on the Logic Models  Note that all environmental strategies go through “Community media advocacy”  Your county logic model will not look like the state model  Will have fewer boxes b/c not every risk factor will be a priority for your county and you won’t implement every strategy  May leave you room to include your priority CLFs on the “one pager”

11 More on the Logic Models  We used arrows on only the most direct connections  There may be plausible connections with no arrows  We’ve broken down the environmental strategy boxes like we broke down risk factors into CLFs  Not as important right now  Start to examine those options on 1/26 and beyond

12 More on the Logic Models  Not every risk factor is created equal  We brainstormed all relevant environmental risk factors  Some do not match up with an evidence-based strategy (e.g., limited transportation options)  Worry about that later  For now, just assess  Importance, ability to change will be factored into prioritization
