Opportunity for Collaboration: A Conceptual Model of Success in Tobacco Control and Cancer Prevention
The final concept map shows that 8 major clusters (or constructs) were considered essential in defining what constitutes a successful tobacco control or cancer prevention program. Cluster location reflects the relationship between these clusters. Three sectors structure the 8 clusters into a 3-section map: the human and relational sector, program capacity sector, and technical and scientific sector. The human and relational sector contains 3 clusters: advocacy and persuasion; building and sustainability; and partnerships. The program capacity sector contains the readiness and support cluster and the program management fundamentals cluster. The technical and scientific sector includes 3 clusters: monitoring and evaluation, utilization of evidence, and implementation.
