New Playbook

The New Playbook Evaluation 

The aim of this evaluation is to measure the outcomes of The New Playbook (TNP) participation.  Specifically: 

  • Are participants applying their knowledge and skills as violence prevention allies? 
  • What parts of The New Playbook resonated with participants? What fell short? 
  • Are participants implementing action plans? If not, why? What actions have TNP participants taken? What barriers have participants experienced in the implementation of their plans? 
  • Are The New Playbook participants facilitating conversations regarding sexual and intimate partner violence in their social and professional spheres? What risk and protective factors are addressed? How have these conversations been received? 
  • How are The New Playbook participants building collaborations for sexual and intimate partner violence prevention in their social and professional networks?  


Participants in The New Playbook trainings are invited to participate in a retrospective participant survey and follow-up phone interview.  

Web Survey:  The New Playbook participants will receive an email invitation to complete the survey. The survey includes a combination of closed and open-ended questions to assess knowledge retention, actions taken, and to solicit feedback on the workshop.  Participants who complete the survey will be entered in to a drawing for a $50 Amazon gift card. 

Follow-up Interview:  At the end of the survey, respondents are asked if they are willing to be contacted for a follow-up phone interview. Respondents who indicate YES, will be asked to provide their first name, phone, and email.  Up to nine respondents will be randomly selected for the follow-up phone interview.  The follow-up interview goes into greater depth about violence prevention activities undertaken after participation in the training.  

Analysis of The New Playbook Pre-Post-Tests: Results from the survey and in-depth interviews will be reviewed along with existing pre/post-tests completed as part of the training. Pre/post-test data files will be transferred by ODVN staff to PHI via a secure file transfer protocol. Pre/post-data will not contain personal identifiers and will not be linked to participant survey or follow-up interview data.  

Confidentiality:   Data associated with this evaluation will be stored in password protected files on secure encrypted servers. Contact information will be destroyed no later than three months after analysis, by June 30, 2019. Data access will be restricted to PHI project staff, experienced with handling confidential and non-confidential data.  Personal names will not be used in reporting.  

Funding: The funding for this research has been provided by The National Network of Public Health Institutes through a contract with the US Centers for Disease Control. The research is led by Dr. Marta Induni  ( and Ms. Nicole Lordi (
