The Guide to Community Preventive Services (Community Guide)
The Community Guide is a public health resource that summarizes interventions to promote community health and prevent disease, tells what works, how well, for whom, where, and (where possible) at what cost. Selected systematic reviews include—
Cancer Control P.L.A.N.E.T.
Cancer Control P.L.A.N.E.T. helps health educators, program staff, researchers, and cancer control planners bridge the research discovery to program delivery gap and increase the adoption of evidence-based approaches across the cancer control continuum. It includes resources on tobacco control; physical activity; sun safety; breast, cervical, and colorectal cancer screening; informed decision making regarding prostate cancer screening; nutrition; and survivorship.
Cancer Control P.L.A.N.E.T. is a collaborative effort of the National Cancer Institute (NCI), CDC, the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, the American Cancer Society, the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality, and the Commission on Cancer.
State Cancer Profiles
CDC and NCI developed the State Cancer Profiles Web site to provide cancer control planners and policy makers with a system to characterize the cancer burden in a standard way. It includes data collected from public health surveillance systems such as—
- NCI’s Surveillance, Epidemiology and End Results (SEER) program.
- CDC’s National Program of Cancer Registries, National Vital Statistics System, and Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System.
- Death data from CDC’s National Center for Health Statistics.
Note: The cancer incidence data provided in State Cancer Profiles are the same as those published in the United States Cancer Statistics report, plus additional data calculations authorized by selected states.
Principles of Community Engagement (Second Edition)
Principles of Community Engagement (Second Edition) provides public health professionals, health care providers, researchers, and community-based leaders and organizations with both a science base and practical guidance for engaging partners in projects that may affect them. The principles of engagement can be used by people in a range of roles, from the program funder who needs to know how to support community engagement to the researcher or community leader who needs hands-on, practical information on how to mobilize the members of a community to partner in research initiatives. In addition, this primer provides tools for those who are leading efforts to improve population health through community engagement.
