HSHC Marketing Surveillance Training Manual 2016 (PDF, 4MB)
The Healthy Stores for a Healthy Community campaign is a statewide collaboration between tobacco use prevention; nutrition and obesity prevention; alcohol abuse prevention; and sexually transmitted disease prevention partners. The goal is to improve the health of Californians by creating change at the retail level that supports healthy living. This joint effort assesses the availability and marketing of tobacco products, food, condoms, and alcohol products. In 2013 and 2016, California local health departments and their partners conducted store observations using these instruments. Observational surveys were augmented with public intercept surveys and key informant interviews.
Emory University Smoke-Free Homes (SFH) Intervention
SFH CA Screener Questionaire 2016 (PDF)
The California Tobacco Control Program is working in partnership with Emory University to implement the Minimal Smoke-Free Homes Intervention. The Minimal Smoke-Free Homes Intervention involves identifying households in which smoking is permitted inside a home. The intervention consists of four components: three mailings of print materials and one coaching call, aimed at increasing household smoking bans and reducing secondhand smoke exposure. Below are links to the evaluation instruments used by the California Minimal Smoke-Free Homes intervention site. Individual sites may have slightly modified these evaluation instruments to tailor them to the community they are addressing.
