Comprehensive Cancer Control: Implementation Case Study—New—National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion (NCCDPHP), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
While much has been learned about the development of Comprehensive Cancer Control (CCC) plans, little is known about CCC grantee activities, organizational capacity, or essential elements of implementing CCC plans. CDC, through a contractor will evaluate the necessary components of the CCC Program. The evaluation consists of: (1) The design of a plan to evaluate the CCC Program; (2) an evaluation of grantee activities; (3) a nationwide assessment of capacity to plan, implement and evaluate CCC programs; and (4) a study of selected grantees' experiences implementing CCC plans. This project will focus on the fourth component of the evaluation.
Implementation case studies provide the opportunity to follow the relationships among needs identified in the planning process, goals and objectives established in the plan (priorities for action), and implemented activities. The goals of the proposed data collection are to document the process and activities CCC programs undertake to implement a CCC plan, and to document measures CCC programs use to assess how well a CCC plan is implemented.
The data will be collected via in-person interviews with key personnel in the implementation of CCC plans. Key personnel will include: Program directors, program staff in health departments and partner organizations, partner organization decision-makers, program evaluators, and representatives from non-partner organizations. Interviews will take place during one 3-to 4-day site visit to 10 sites. The program directors will also complete a packet of background information in preparation for the site visits. The only cost to respondents is their time. The total annual burden for this data collection is 145 hours.
