November 12 and 13, 1998
Capital Hilton, Washington, D.C.


  1. It is important to get a flavor for comprehensiveness of each chapter. It was recommended that the Related Objectives be placed in the front of each chapter. Since there are so many objectives that may be relevant and are not included in the chapters, it is good to see them up front as "related objectives."
  2. Better than the best discussion--these may not be achievable. It is not always straightforward. May need to reconsider some of them.


  1. For developmental objectives, there should be some text on how targets should be set.
  2. "Better than best" method of target setting needs development and there needs to be consistent documentation of target setting across chapters.
  3. 17-13 Skin cancer counseling should be included in the objective along with sun damage and sun protection.
  4. Lung cancer objective should be broken out into male and female categories.
  5. Nutrition and tobacco should be referenced in front of cancer chapter as to where they appear in other 2010 chapters.
  6. Move related areas to the front of the chapter.
  7. Recommend that you put as much detail into the test as possible regarding risk factors.
