Cancer control planning and establishment of priorities for intervention by a state health department.
A number of data sources routinely available to State health departments were analyzed as part of a State health department cancer control planning effort.
This planning effort consisted of seven steps ; the most challenging one was the establishment of priorities for cancer control interventions.
Using data from available sources, however, a framework for prioritizing potential cancer control interventions as well as choosing a geographic area in which to implement selected interventions was developed.
Factors considered in this framework for setting intervention priorities included the magnitude of the problem ; the existence of scientific consensus regarding the efficacy of intervention techniques ; the availability of resources within communities to implement an intervention ; and the existence of public demand for the intervention.
