    Description

    This dataset was generated from a 12-month two-arm cluster-randomized controlled trial, Counseling African Americans to Control Hypertension (CAATCH). The goal of the study was to evaluate the effectiveness of a multilevel, multicomponent, evidence-based intervention compared with usual care in improving blood pressure control among hypertensive blacks who receive care in community health centers. 30 community health centers were randomly assigned to the intervention group (n=15) or the usual care group (n=15). A total of 1,056 patients were enrolled in CAATCH, and patients completed face-to-face interviews with and had their blood pressure measured at baseline, six, and twelve months. Variables collected include changes in systolic blood pressure and diastolic blood pressure from baseline to 12 months as well as change in physical activity, perfect change in weight, change in the number of daily servings of fruits and vegetables, and the proportion of participants with adequate blood pressure control at 12 months.

    Description

    This data was generated from a two-arm randomized controlled study. The study evaluated the effectiveness of a culturally and linguistically tailored telephone-delivered intervention to promote adherence to physician-recommended sleep apnea assessment and treatment among blacks with metabolic syndrome. Outcomes were assessed at baseline, 6, and 12 months post-randomization. Participants in the intervention arm received 10 phone calls to address the challenges and barriers to recommended care for sleep apnea. Sociodemographic variables, including age, type of health insurance, marital status, education, place of birth, years in current residence and locality, number of children and adults living in the household, self-described ethnicity, and annual household income were collected. An Apnea-risk evaluation system questionnaire was used to collect information on sleep patterns, daytime functioning, knowledge of sleep apnea, and diseases associated with sleep apnea. Other questionnaires collected information on knowledge of and belief in sleep apnea as well as a 32-item instrument used to assess a person's readiness to change their behaviors. Further variables were collected on medical history including a history of sleep disorders, obesity, diabetes mellitus, hypertension, dyslipidemia, and other health behaviors.

    Description

    This dataset was generated as part of a cluster-randomized, 2-arm trial to evaluate the effectiveness of a faith-based group-counseling therapeutic lifestyle intervention and motivational interviewed (MINT-TLC) vs. health education (HE) on black adults who attend churches in New York City. 32 churches with approximately 300 eligible adults were randomly assigned to either MINT-TLC or HE control, and data was collected at baseline, 3, 6, and 9 months. Data was collected on systolic blood pressure (SBP), diastolic blood pressure (DBP), intake of fruits and vegetables, level of physical activity and weight loss, sex, age, ethnicity, place of birth, language spoken at home, marital status, education, employment, insurance, religious affiliation, smoking, and alcohol use, National Cancer Institute Perfect Energy from Fat Screener, self-efficacy and intrinsic motivation for physical activity and fruits and vegetables, Charlson Comorbidity Index, Spiritual Locus of Control, Perceived Stress, Quality of Life (12-item Short-Form Health Survey), Patient Health Questionnaire 8-item Depression Scale, Medical Outcomes Study Social Support Survey, Hope Scale, and Morisky Medication Adherence Questionnaire, and waist circumference. MINT-TLC treatment included twelve 90-minute weekly group session followed by three monthly individual MINT sessions while the HE treatment consisted of eleven 90-minute group sessions for health education.
