Proposed Project

Comprehensive Cancer Control (CCC) Capacity Assessment—New—National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion (NCCDPHP), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

Background and Brief Description

While much has been learned about the development of the Comprehensive Cancer Control (CCC) plans, little is known about: (1) CCC grantee activities; (2) organizational capacity to plan, implement, or evaluate CCC efforts; and (3) essential elements of implementing CCC plans. CDC, through an evaluation contract will assess these three components of the CCC Program. This assessment focuses on the second component of the evaluation. The purpose of the capacity assessment is to ascertain the capacity of states, territories and tribal organizations to plan, implement and evaluate CCC efforts.

A Web-based survey will be used to collect descriptive information from all 50 states, the District of Columbia, 8 territories, and 15 tribes on six critical areas of capacity (funding, staffing, data, partnerships, leadership and organizational support.) CCC Program Managers or chronic disease Directors will complete the survey, with assistance from other staff or partner organizations as needed. A total of 74 managers or directors will be asked to complete the survey, which is expected to take an average of 2 hours to complete. Other staff or partner organizations assisting respondents in completing the survey will spend 15 minutes, on average, providing information. Respondents who indicate that particular CCC activities are not in place will be contacted by telephone to explore issues, barriers, and future plans. We estimate that these telephone calls will be made to one-third of respondents and will take an average of 30 minutes to complete. The only cost to respondents is their time. This is a one-time data collection effort.
