    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 dataset was generated during the Stroke Warning Information and Faster Treatment (SWIFT) Study. The study aimed to determine the efficacy of a culturally tailed interactive stroke preparedness strategy for acute ischemic stroke (IS) and transient ischemic attack (TIA) patients.

    Patients were included in the study if they had a diagnosis of IS or TIA, were over 19 years old and lived in a household with a telephone. Patients were excluded if they were unable to give informed consent, were discharged to a long term nursing home or requiring 24-hour care, or had a modified Rankin score over 4 at baseline, have severe aphasia limiting comprehension, have a pre-stroke dementia history, or have end-stage disease.

    Variables collected include demographic information, the time between symptom onset and ED arrival, knowledge and attitudes about strokes, and risk factors.
