4029.0 Using Cancer Epidemiology Data for Comprehensive Cancer Control Planning, Implementation, and Evaluation

Tuesday, October 30, 2012: 8:30 AM - 10:00 AM
This session will provide an overview of the importance of using cancer epidemiology data to guide comprehensive cancer control efforts at the state and local level. Presenters will highlight the process implemented in Kentucky to significantly impact colorectal cancer screening, incidence and mortality rates. Being able to translate cancer epidemiology data to impact public health practice and disease burden is a vital skill for public health and cancer control practitioners.
Session Objectives: Attendees will be able to describe national and statewide comprehensive cancer control efforts funded by CDC; attendees will be able to explain how cancer epidemiology and socio-demographic data is aggregated for use in comprehensive cancer control planning at state and local levels; attendees will be able to discuss how communities use data to set priorities and chose interventions for cancer control implementation; and attendees will be able to describe how to measure and evaluate the impact of comprehensive cancer control.
