Preventing Chronic Disease | Cost-Effective Strategies forRural Community Outreach, Hawaii, 2010-2011 - CDC

CDC  older adults  Preventing Chronic Disease  PCD  Medication Safety  rural  outreach  community health education  chronic disease management 

Three strategies designed to maximize attendance at educational sessions on chronic disease medication safety in older adults in rural areas were implemented sequentially and compared for cost-effectiveness: 1) existing community groups and events, 2) formal advertisement, and 3) employer-based outreach. Cost-effectiveness was measured by comparing overall cost per attendee recruited and number of attendees per event. The overall cost per attendee was substantially higher for the formal advertising strategy, which produced the lowest number of attendees per event. Leveraging existing community events and employers in rural areas was more cost-effective than formal advertisement for recruiting rural community members.
