Cancer Control P.L.A.N.E.T.

Description

This Web site offers information to cancer control planners, program staff, and researchers in order to assist them in achieving their goals:

  • to reduce cancer risk
  • to reduce the number of new cancer cases
  • to reduce the number of deaths from cancer
  • to enhance the quality of life for cancer survivors

While many share the same goals, all do not have easy access to resources that can facilitate the transfer of evidence-based research findings into practice. This portal provides access to data and resources that can help planners, program staff, and researchers to design, implement, and evaluate evidence-based cancer control programs.

This site provides access to Web-based resources that can help:

  • Assess the cancer and/or risk factor burden within a given State
  • Identify potential partner organizations that may already be working with high-risk populations
  • Understand the current research findings and recommendations
  • Access and download evidence-based programs and products
  • Find guidelines for planning and evaluation
