CCC Implementation Building Blocks Guide: A Guide and Tools for Implementing
Comprehensive Cancer Control Plan Priorities

The CCC Implementation Building Blocks Guide and Tools have been designed to change and improve the way a CCC coalition implements its cancer plan. It is not a magical method or the latest fad in business operations, but it is a simplified, tried and true process for mobilizing CCC coalitions to make a difference in their work on their cancer plan.

Working Together Locally to Control Cancer: Comprehensive Cancer Control Coalitions and the Commission on Cancer

This is a guide on how Comprehensive Cancer Control (CCC) CDC state funded programs and their affiliated CCC coalitions can meaningfully engage with their American College of Surgeons (ACOS) Commission on Cancer (CoC) State Chairs. This guide includes an overview of the ACOS CoC, the role of the CoC and their State Chairs, and also describes how CCC programs and coalitions can work with the CoC State Chairs.

Engaging Businesses in Comprehensive Cancer Control Coalitions: The Value Proposition for Comprehensive Cancer Control

Leaders from all sectors can play an important role in comprehensive cancer control.
Business leaders with untapped expertise and resources are often underrepresented in comprehensive cancer control (CCC) coalitions. This Toolkit is designed to support coalitions in analyzing their current membership and identifying and engaging new members from the business (for-profit) community.

  • Data sources where you can look at indicators by different demographic factors to uncover disparities
    • Cancer Facts & Figures for African Americans (ACS)
    • Cancer Facts & Figures for Hispanics/Latinos (ACS)
    • Cancer Disparities: A Chartbook (2018) Illustrates the scope of cancer disparities that exist across our nation (ACS CAN)
    • Data Equity Framework from We All Count. When it comes to equity in data science projects, trying to find all the ways that bias, assumptions, unfairness, and prejudice can sneak in may feel overwhelming. Trying to look at a whole project and see all the equity weaknesses and issues is almost impossible. That’s why We All Count has developed: The Data Equity Framework.
    • Racial Equity Data Hub from the Tableau Foundation
    • State Cancer Profiles Cancer statistics, charts, and maps by data topic across the cancer control continuum (National Cancer Institute [NCI])
    • National Equity Atlas One-stop-shop for data and policy ideas to advance racial equity and shared prosperity. Provides equity metrics that are deeply disaggregated by race/ethnicity, gender, nativity, ancestry, and income for the largest 100 cities, 150 regions, all 50 states, and the US as a whole. Includes a brand new racial equity index. (PolicyLink and University of Southern California Equity Research Institute)
    • The CDC and the HHS Office of Minority Health developed the Minority Health Social Vulnerability Index (SVI) to enhance existing resources to support the identification of racial and ethnic minority communities at the greatest risk for disproportionate impact and adverse outcomes due to the COVID-19 pandemic but much of the data are relevant for cancer too like  SES, language, housing, transportation, health care infrastructure, and medical vulnerability. The Minority Health SVI is an extension of the CDC Social Vulnerability Index, which is a platform that helps emergency response planners and public health officials identify, map, and plan support for communities that will most likely need support before, during, and after a public health emergency.  
    • New social determinants of health dataset available for download and analysis from the National Cancer Institute. This data set includes, for each US census tract, certain SDOH data elements, including race/ethnicity, education, poverty, urban/rural, socioeconomic status, and racial residential segregation indices defined using 2008-2012 American Community Survey data and 2010 definitions of rural urban commuting areas. The SDOH data set is publicly available, pending an application and data use agreement.  
  • Data Visualization information and tools

Community-level strategies and resources

Resources for the clinical community

National Initiatives and examples from across the country

  • CDC’s Minority Health website with Health Equity Matters newsletter, Conversations in Equity blog, and other resources
  • NACDD’s Health Equity Council website with tools & resources, including extensive recommended reading lists, and archived webinars
  • CDC’s Networking2Save program supports a consortium of national networks to advance commercial tobacco use prevention and cancer prevention in populations experiencing tobacco- and cancer-related health disparities

Vaccine Preventable Cancers

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) provides HPV resources and HBV resources for parents and the public, health care professionals, partners and programs.

The National Cancer Institute (NCI) hosts the Evidence-Based Cancer Control Programs (EBCCP) website, searchable database of evidence-based cancer control programs that provides program planners and public health practitioners easy and immediate access to:

  1. programs tested in a research study,
  2. publication(s) of the study findings, and
  3. program materials used with a particular study population in a specific setting.

The National HPV Vaccination Roundtable (HPV Roundtable), convened by the American Cancer Society, is a trusted coalition of public, private, and voluntary organizations and experts dedicated to reducing incidence of and mortality from HPV cancers in the United States and curates a helpful resource library for various audiences (parents, clinicians, state, and local coalitions) involved in similar efforts.

Hep B United is the only national coalition dedicated to address and eliminate hepatitis B and associated liver cancer. They offer resources for organizations like webinars, fact sheets, communications resources, and more.

Colorectal Cancer Screening

The U.S. Cancer Statistics Data Visualizations tool provides colorectal cancer incidence and death counts, rates, and trend data; survival and prevalence estimates; and state-, county-, and congressional district data in a user-driven format. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the National Cancer Institute (NCI) have combined their cancer incidence data sources to produce these statistics. Mortality data are from CDC’s National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS) National Vital Statistics System (NVSS). The Tool also provides colorectal cancer screening rates for every state, for all races and ethnicities, male and females (USCS Data Visualizations – CDC ). These model-based estimates are generated using BRFSS. Users can also click on each state for county-level screening rates.

CDC supports cancer control programs and coalitions in every state, several tribes and  tribal organizations, and US Territories and Pacific Island Jurisdications through its National Comprehensive Cancer Control Program (NCCCP) | CDC . These coalitions work together to prioritize the implementation of activities to prevent cancer, find and detect cancer early (including colorectal cancer); increase access to quality treatment, and improve the quality of life of cancer survivors in their state- or jurisdiction-wide strategic Comprehensive Cancer Control Plans | CDC.

The Colorectal Cancer Facts & Figures report provides a comprehensive overview of colorectal cancer in the US, including statistics on colorectal cancer occurrence, as well as information about risk factors, prevention, early detection, and treatment.

The NCI provides a database of evidence-based programs for colorectal cancer screening that allows you to search by population of focus, delivery location, community type, age, sex, and race/ethnicity, as well as by whether materials are available on the website. 

GW provides toolkits designed to help partners communicate about colorectal cancer via social media.

In partnership with Kaiser Permanente Center for Health Research, and with support from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, NACDD has created a new resource designed to help increase colorectal cancer screening rates – the Mailed FIT GuideThe guide provides step-by-step instructions for planning and implementing a mailed FIT outreach program.

Sustaining Coalitions

Through virtual discussions, the CCCNP aims to create a supportive network of interconnected coalition leadership working to address cancer-related needs across states, tribes, territories, and Pacific Island Jurisdictions. Zoom Meet-Up sessions are facilitated by a National Partner around a specific topic related to coalition functioning and sustainability, featuring a national expert and a CCC coalition example. Zoom Check-In sessions, held quarterly, are 30-minute discussions, focused on sustaining coalitions through uncertain times, such as the COVID-19 pandemic.

Nine Habits of Successful Comprehensive Cancer Control Coalitions, 2nd Edition 
The Nine Habits were developed utilizing information from evaluation of the attributes of high performing CCC coalitions, real-life experiences of CCC coalitions over the past seven years, and a 2018 literature review. The Guide was made possible through the collaboration of the CCCNP with leadership in development from Strategic Health Concepts and the American Cancer Society.

Cancer Plan Tip Sheets are offered through the CCCNP to assist cancer coalitions charged with developing, implementing, and evaluating cancer control plans tailored to their state/tribe/territory/jurisdiction. CCC plans focus coalition efforts on evidence-based interventions (EBIs) that impact cancer prevention and control across the cancer continuum. Each tip sheet focuses on a specific topic (e.g., colorectal cancer screening, tobacco control, risk factors for cancer survivors).
