NACCHO Supports Local Implementation of Comprehensive Cancer Control (CCC)


Through a cooperative agreement with CDC&#’;s provides technical assistance to NACCHO working toward implementation of Comprehensive Cancer Prevention and Control (LHDs) efforts at the community level. CCC supports NACCHO in planning, implementing, and evaluating evidence-based cancer prevention and control strategies to improve population health. In line with its strategic map, LHDs supports NACCHO in championing effective cancer prevention approaches by:

  • Linking LHDs and state LHDs coalitions
  • Developing and sharing tools and publications to support members in enhancing local CCC efforts
  • Promoting model CCC practices
  • Supporting CCC in developing and sustaining partnerships for LHDs
  • Providing training and technical assistance to enhance the capacity of CCC to implement local LHDs activities
 
What is Comprehensive Cancer Control

26256607-people-working-together_1Comprehensive Cancer Control (CCC) consists of collaborative strategies to leverage community resources for cancer prevention, early detection, and treatment. Common CCC activities include implementation of strategies designed to reduce cancer risk, promote healthy lifestyles, ensure access to screenings/diagnostic technologies, and improve the quality of treatment and support services to enhance survivorship. Through the Division of Cancer Prevention and Control Division, CDC funds state-based CCC coalitions who work diligently to build infrastructure, leverage resources, conduct surveillance, determine priorities, and measure the impact of programs designed to improve cancer outcomes.

NACCHO's Local Comprehensive Cancer Control Case Studies

NACCHO has released nine case studies featuring the work of LHDs that have addressed the cancer burden via comprehensive cancer control. The case studies provide examples of the ways that LHDs have successfully implemented NACCHO’s Framework for Building Successful and Sustainable Comprehensive Cancer Control Coalitions.

National Cancer Institute's State Cancer Profiles

The newly redesigned website features a Cancer Control Continuum Dashboard as a point of access to cancer related statistics that range from prevention to survival. Another important new access point on the Home Page is a clickable US map that provides a quick reference to the same cancer related statistics across the geo-spatial continuum.  

 
Multi-Level Interventions for Healthy Lifestyle Habits

In recognition of National Physical Fitness and Sports Month, NCI's Research 2 Reality Program is highlighting two researchers working in the fields of nutrition and exercise. Dr. Sean Lucan, a practicing family physician and former Robert Wood Johnson Clinical Scholar joined R2R to discuss how different aspects of urban food environments may influence what people eat, and what the implications are for obesity and chronic disease, particularly in low-income and minority communities. Dr. Basia Belza, with the University of Washington, works on implementation strategies for Project EnhanceFitness, an ongoing, low-cost, evidenced-based group exercise program that helps older adults at all levels of fitness become more active, energized, and empowered to sustain independent lives. Their efforts are demonstrative of the multi-level interventions needed in the promotion of healthier habits and lives. Read more about them and their initiatives on R2R.
