CDC, through its Proximal Indicators Project, developed a set of rated and ranked indicators for planning implementation strategies and measuring the impact of Diabetes Prevention and Control Program's (DPCP) core interventions. Proximal indicators are the short and intermediate-term indicators that map to the outcomes articulated on the Program Logic Model for DPCPs. This Program Logic Model was revised in 2012 to incorporate the four-domain framework being employed by all Divisions in the National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion. Indicators will support evaluation and program improvement at the grantee level as well as efforts to evaluate the collective impact of state-based DPCPs.
One hundred candidate indicators were identified through an extensive literature review, a review of current measurement systems used by the CDC's Division of Diabetes Translation and other chronic disease programs, and interviews with DPCPs. The project resulted in a guidance document with a set of indicators that will be used by DPCPs.
