Well-Integrated Screening and Evaluation for Women Across The Nation

Miruna Petrescu-Prahova

Funding has been awarded to principal investigator Miruna Petrescu-Prahova by the Washington State Department of Health (DOH) for "Well-Integrated Screening and Evaluation for Women Across The Nation (WISEWOMAN)".



DOH is contracting with the University of Washington Health Promotion Research Center (UW-HPRC) to improve access to and participation in Health Behavior Support System (HBSS) programs for hypertension and high blood cholesterol management. UW-HPRC will also support the implementation of the use of self measured blood pressure monitoring (SMBP) combined with clinical support among adults with hypertension. Through three CDC funded grants, this contract with UW-HPRC will also support policy, systems, and environmental (PSE) change activities that seek to reduce heart disease, stroke, and support disease management program sustainability. UW-HPRC will collaborate with other contractors to test and implement PSEs and best practices in the clinical environment
and disseminate evidence-based programs for self-management practices for adults with high blood cholesterol and/or high blood pressure in a variety of settings.
