C.H.A.N.G.E. Sample Questions Community-At-Large Sector Physical Activity To what extent does the Tribe encourage walking by developing, maintaining, and/or promoting walking routes to, from and around tribal properties? To what extent does the tribe offer, promote, or provide access to traditional cultural physical activities like dancing? Leadership Does the Tribe have a health promotion budget? Nutrition To what extent does the Tribe use locally grown and traditional foods at Tribal restaurants and events? Tobacco To what extent does the Tribe prohibit commercial tobacco use for outdoor public places? Chronic Disease Management To what extent does the Tribe educate Tribal members about obesity prevention?
C.H.A.N.G.E. Sample Questions Health Care Sector Physical Activity To what extent do health care providers assess patients’ physical activity during routine office visits? Nutrition To what extent do the health care facilities provide free or low cost weight management or nutrition programs? Tobacco To what extent do health care providers provide regular counseling about the harm of commercial tobacco use and exposure during routine office visits? Chronic Disease Management To what extent do the health care facilities have a systematic approach to diabetes care? Leadership To what extent do the health care facilities provide access to medical services outside of regular working hours ?
C.H.A.N.G.E. 20-40 Questions in each sector Major Community Events, Health Care, Education, Tribal Government, Work Site Score Policy 1 - Not identified as a problem 3 – Policy formulation and adoption 5 – Policy evaluation and enforcement Environment 1 – Elements not in place 3 – Some elements in place 5 – All elements in place
C.H.A.N.G.E. Findings Chronic Disease Management Received high scores except Major Community Events had scores less than 3 Reason: No onsite preventative medical screenings and chronic disease management education and prevention Education (Afterschool/Summer Programs/ Head Start and Tutoring) Lower score due to inconsistent engaging of parents in chronic disease prevention for Tribal youth Tribal Community low scores for use of traditional wellness to address chronic disease
CHANGE Findings Nutrition Low policy scores but high environmental. Many evaluated a 2 for policy and a 3 for environmental support. Indicating support from some but not consistent enough for policy. Examples: nutrition labeling of foods at Tribal events, healthy options at all Tribal events, healthy vending machines, access to refrigeration for staff, weight loss programs, promotion and education regarding traditional foods, programming to support community gardens, etc.
C.H.A.N.G.E. Findings Physical Activity Most differences between sectors For Example: Education and Tribal Community had only one score below 3 but worksite had many 1 and 2 scores. The environmental score for traditional cultural physical activities was 4 however, the policy score was 1. Midwinter gathering and Restoration Celebration had both scored low for policy but high in environmental.
CHANGE Findings Commercial Tobacco Use Overall the Tribe’s policies and environmental support for commercial tobacco cessation received high scores. Access to commercial tobacco cessation products and services was indentified as particularity strong. Three questions scored low: Education sector scored a 2 for referring participants for tobacco cessation. Tribal Community received a 1 for environmental elements in place to prohibit commercial tobacco promotions, and prizes.
Healthy Communities Discussion Draft: Community Health Action Plan Goal: To support Tribal members and Tribal employees making healthy choices, improving their health and well-being. Strategies: Develop policies and programs that make it easier for Tribal members and employees to: Choose to eat healthy foods Engage in physical activity Self-manage chronic disease Reduce, quit, or never start using commercial tobacco products
Coquille Indian Tribe Sample Strategies Policy Actions: Healthy Foods Develop a “Healthy Food” policy for all Tribe- hosted events and meetings with food that requires: Healthy food choice alternatives at all events and meetings with food. Traditional food options, with labeling that describes the food and its nutritional value, be available at all Tribe-hosted events and meetings with food. Smaller or half portions and “tasting options” with serving size labeling to be offered at all Tribe-hosted events and meetings with food.
Coquille Indian Tribe Sample Strategies Program Activities Physical Activity Develop informational materials about walking trails on Kilkich community land. Create maps or brochures of walking trails, include mileage information, elevation gain, and level of difficulty. Funding Opportunity
Next Steps Currently in the Process of Completing the Healthy Communities Action Plan. Goal to complete 6-30-12. Gain support and approval through the appropriate Coquille Tribal Channels. RFP “Oregon Healthy Communities Implementation Program”.
