media toolkits - New version added 9/15/23
A social media toolkit highlighting each of the six key focus areas of the Plan was added 9/15/2023:
reflection to action (UpDATED Aug 3)
The Plan document outlines a flexible, 12-step process to assist advocates in planning action programs. Steps include first surveying local needs, identifying those Plan recommendations that address the needs, and then finding partners and resources to implement those recommendations. Additional guidance on the six steps in the Reflection Phase is provided in the following documents:
implementation guide (Pending)
The Plan document provides a list of 99 action recommendations developed by six working groups for consideration at community, county, state, and national levels. Each recommendation is based on additional information complied and discussed by the working groups, including the rationale, evidence base, implications, barriers and facilitators of implementation, potential key performance indicators, and other relevant information. By late 2023, that information will be made available in a searchable online database on the USNWSAP website.
research agenda (pending)
The working groups for the six focus areas who formulated the action recommendations also identified important topics with evidence gaps which need additional data and review. Those will be complied into a research agenda that will be posted when it becomes available.
The Plan document contains brief examples of the how various groups have made impacts as suggested in the Plan's call to action. Click on the titles in the bulleted list for more information. Additional examples will be added as the Plan progresses.
