Author information

  • 1Battelle Centers for Public Health Research and Evaluation, Arlington, Virginia, USA.


Site-specific and risk factor-specific cancer programs can point to impressive accomplishments, but coordination among them often is lacking. The Division of Cancer Prevention and Control, National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, is working with state health agency staff and other stakeholders to develop a comprehensive, integrated, nationwide approach to cancer control. The participatory innovation diffusion model may help this complex public health innovation be adopted. The participants in the process identified problematic aspects of the innovation and steps that the division can take to ameliorate these problems before the innovation is implemented.
