In this collaboration with CDC OSH, a readiness-based technical assistance (TA) process was developed to help project officers identify and act on readiness issues with their state grantees as they implemented tobacco-related policies. Additionally, readiness concepts were incorporated into daily program planning and support activities learning across the CDC.
Collaboration and funding was provided by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation.
"At some point, we just have to roll up our sleeves and do something different.
That's what readiness provides. It's the something that makes implementation a bit better."
