Abstract

OBJECTIVE:

To identify regional, organizational, and personal characteristics that predict awareness and adoption of a dietary curriculum training and CD among educators.

METHODS:

A cross-sectional study of educators (n=675) representing 48 states report program awareness and factors that influenced adoption.

RESULTS:

Among those surveyed, 354 educators were aware (52%) of the CD and 192 educators adopted it (54%). Adopters were nearly 8 times more likely to identify training time and nearly 7 times more likely to identify CD training method as influencing adoption.

CONCLUSION:

Although regional and organizational characteristics are predictors of awareness, these variables were less likely to predict adoption of such programs.
