CDC has collected and produced a variety of resources that may be useful for those developing or implementing comprehensive cancer control (CCC) programs. Please visit National Comprehensive Cancer Control Program Publications Available Online for a complete list of documents in PDF and HTML formats.
Please visit Scientific Articles about Comprehensive Cancer Control for a complete list of scientific articles by CDC authors.
Comprehensive Cancer Control Promotional Toolkit
The Comprehensive Cancer Control Promotional Toolkit is designed to provide coalitions, program directors, and CCC partners with a set of materials to promote comprehensive cancer control.
Comprehensive Cancer Control Plans: A Content Review
Since the mid-1990s, CDC's Division of Cancer Prevention and Control has provided support to states, tribes, and territories for comprehensive cancer control (CCC). Creating and implementing CCC plans is key to these efforts aimed at coordinating and integrating cancer control activities to maximize resources and reduce duplication of effort where appropriate.
In response to information requests about CCC plans, CDC worked with a contractor to review 31 plans that were published December 31, 2004. CDC chose the topics to review based on stakeholder inquiries. The review used a systematic keyword search.
The document Comprehensive Cancer Control Plans: A Content Review (PDF-1.9MB) provides a brief overview of CCC plans and offers a starting point for reviewing them on specific topics. Please interpret the results with caution as they are limited by the data source used (CCC plans) and the keywords searched. Although a keyword was not found in a particular CCC plan, the state or tribal organization may still be engaged in related activities that are not addressed in the CCC plan or are stated in terms that differ from those used in this review.
CancerPlan.org* is an interactive Web site that provides Comprehensive Cancer Control (CCC) resources, tools, and program practices. The purpose of CancerPlan.org is to help cancer planners for states, tribes, territories, and communities with the development, implementation, and evaluation of comprehensive cancer efforts.
Among its features, CancerPlan.org offers an interactive map allowing access to CCC state, territorial, and tribal plans and resources. It also offers a messsage board for registered users to share valuable CCC information. Future enhancements include a CCC Workbook, offering CCC state, territories, tribes, and communities a platform to work on their comprehensive cancer activities.
CancerPlan.org is the product of a collaboration among the American Cancer Society, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and the National Cancer Institute.
Cancer Control P.L.A.N.E.T.
This Web site is designed to help health educators, program staff, researchers, and cancer control planners bridge the research discovery to program delivery gap and increase the adoption of evidence-based approaches across the cancer control continuum. Cancer Control P.L.A.N.E.T. includes resources on tobacco control; physical activity; sun safety; breast, cervical, and colorectal cancer screening; informed decision-making regarding prostate cancer screening; nutrition; and survivorship.
Cancer Control P.L.A.N.E.T. is a collaborative effort of the National Cancer Institute (NCI), CDC, the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), the American Cancer Society (ACS), the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ), and the Commission on Cancer (CoC).
State Cancer Profiles Web Site
The State Cancer Profiles Web site was developed by CDC and the National Cancer Institute (NCI) to provide cancer control planners and policy makers with a system to characterize the cancer burden in a standardized manner.
The State Cancer Profiles Web site includes data collected from Public health surveillance systems such as:
Note: The cancer incidence data provided in State Cancer Profiles are identical to those published in the U.S. Cancer Statistics: 2004 Incidence report, plus additional data calculations recently authorized by selected states.
Model Framework for Comprehensive Cancer Control
In 1998, CDC developed a model framework for comprehensive cancer control (PDF-269KB). To test it, extensive technical support was provided to state health departments in Arkansas, Illinois, Kansas, Kentucky, Maine, and Utah from January 1999 through December 2000. None of these states received direct financial support from CDC.
Resources for CCC Programs
This document presents guidelines for developing a comprehensive cancer control plan that can be both implemented and evaluated.
The Toolkit is a collection of sample tools designed for use in combination with the Guidelines to assist professionals from a variety of settings as they undertake comprehensive cancer control activities.
The Community Guide is a public health resource that summarizes interventions to promote community health and prevent disease, tells what works, how well, for whom, where, and (where possible) at what cost. In addition, the Community Guide topics reflect the Healthy People 2010 objectives of tackling risk behaviors related to the largest burden of disease and providing guidance on ways to reduce disease, injury, and impairment.
