Health Promotion and Chronic Disease Prevention (HPCDP) Evaluations


Health Promotion and Chronic Disease Prevention (HPCDP) has a robust, coordinated evaluation approach that addresses elements of comprehensive prevention programs. This webpage details the coordinated evaluation effort for Oregon's Health Promotion and Chronic Disease Prevention work. Additionally, these reports generate information that can be used to improve the quality of work and demonstrate accountability, transparency, and effectiveness. 

Program Evaluations
  • Tobacco Prevention and Education Program 2023 Evaluation Report – This evaluation examined the effectiveness of Oregon Tobacco Prevention Education Program and its activities in the 2021-2023 biennium. It focused on three components. 1.) Measuring progress in changing local tobacco prevention policies and strategies (statewide) to reduce the availability of tobacco products, reduce exposure to secondhand smoke/vapor, and improve health systems capacity to diagnose and treat nicotine addiction; 2.) Understanding and improving Local Public Health Authority (LPHA) approaches to working with health systems to address the tobacco use disparities among people with substance use disorders and mental health conditions; and 3.) Understanding community conditions that may contribute to commercial tobacco/nicotine use in Oregon's rural populations. 
  • Tiered Funding Model Evaluation – Focused on results of changes made to the TPEP local health department funding model in 2019, including: the impact of the tiered funding model on local policy and health systems change; the effect of state-to-local technical assistance; and local TPEP programs progress in developing partnerships outside of their local health department.
