Colorado's AgrAbility Project's Effects on KASA and Practice Changes with Agricultural Producers and Professionals
Fetsch, Robert J.; Jackman, Danielle M.
Journal of Extension, v53 n6 Article 6FEA6 Dec 2015
Disability rates resulting from work-related injuries remain steadily high among farmers and ranchers. To address the gap in services within this population, USDA implemented AgrAbility nationally. Using part of Bennett's hierarchical model, the current study evaluated the KASA and practice change levels of 401 farmers and ranchers and compared them to the levels of 401 AgrAbility professionals who participated in Colorado AgrAbility Project workshops (1998-2013). Results indicated that although KASA and practice change levels decreased somewhat from immediately following the workshop to follow-up, 90%-98% of participants reported KASA improvements 4 months afterwards. Implications are discussed.
