Significance: The US Affiliated Pacific Island (USAPI) region covers 869,540 miles2 and five time zones. The ten USAPI jurisdictions are resource limited, culturally unique, and experience disparities in cancer rates compared to the US nation. Since 2007 the University of Hawaii, Department of Family and Community Health with the USAPI jurisdictions plans, implements, and evaluates the CDC-funded Pacific Center of Excellence in the Elimination of Disparities (CEED) to reduce cancer disparities. A Performance Management Plan (PMP) provides an evaluation framework for the multi-level, multi-site evaluation at the Pacific region, USAPI jurisdictions, and community projects within each jurisdiction.

Objectives: Data collection procedures for the PMP and results to inform performance measures during the five years of Pacific CEED will be reported.

Methods: Performance Measure Reference Sheets define each of the 52 evaluation measures, data sources, frequency of data collection, and data quality parameters. The ReportPortal provides an online reporting mechanism for the PMP. Populated ReportPortal data will be analyzed to provide results on the 52 cancer prevention and control measures at the regional, jurisdiction, and project levels.

Results. Results reporting will cover the extent the USAPI region, each of the 10 USAPI jurisdictions, and each of the 38 projects across the jurisdictions have met performance measures. Discussion will include the extent that the online PMP evaluation framework met standards of utility, feasibility, proprietary, and accuracy.

Conclusions: This online PMP may inform multi-site multi-level program evaluations and reporting of multiple outcomes in the prevention and control of non-communicable diseases across the USAPI.

Learning Areas:
Conduct evaluation related to programs, research, and other areas of practice
Public health administration or related administration
Public health or related research

Learning Objectives:
1) Participants will be able to report data collection procedures for the PMP. 2) Participants will be able to identify results of the performance measures as a result of the five years of implementation of Pacific CEED.
