ORIGINAL RESEARCH
Initiatives of 11 Rural Appalachian Cancer Coalitions in Pennsylvania and New York

This diagram is a coalition conceptual model that shows 11 rural Appalachian coalitions in Pennsylvania and New York. It is divided into three large rectangular sections; each is labeled at the bottom. The first one is labeled “Organizational Capacity,” which points right to the section labeled “Process,” which points further right to the section labeled “Outcome/Impact.”

The Organizational Capacity section contains two boxes at the top that read 1) “Individual Members: Name, contact information, membership status, occupation, cancer experience, leadership role,” and 2) “Organizational Members: Name, contact information, type, cancer focus, mission.” There are three boxes at the bottom that read 1) “Planning: Cancer plan, assessment, 2) “Governance: Bylaws,” and 3) “Subcommittee: Name, type, cancer focus, objective.” The boxes at the top and bottom point to a box in the center that reads, “Coalition: Name, date formed, counties served, cancer focus, mission.”

The Process section contains a box at the top that reads, “Coalition Meeting: Date, length, location, attendees, agenda items.” This box points down to a box that reads, “Coalition Development Activity: Title, date, location, objective, cancer focus, materials, evaluation” which points down to a box at the bottom that reads, “Intermediate Community Change: Change in partnerships, programs, or practices resulting from coalition efforts.”

The Outcome/Impact section begins with a box at the top that reads, “Proposal: Title, lead agency, funding agency, amount, dates, mission, cancer focus, funded.” This box points down to another box that reads, “Community Intervention: Title, date, objectives, cancer focus, location, audience, reach, resources, evaluation, community actions.” This one points down to a final box that reads “Community/Health Change: Sustained program, practice, policy, or health status change resulting from coalition efforts.”
