The Division of Cancer Prevention and Control, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, is working with state health agency staff and other stakeholders to develop a comprehensive and integrated approach to cancer control. To help stakeholders visualize the approach, a graphic model was developed based on stakeholder input and a literature review of existing models. Phases of the model include setting optimal objectives (data driven), determining optimal strategies (science driven), establishing feasible priorities (capacity driven), and implementing effective strategies (outcome driven). The model currently is being validated through case studies of state-level cancer planning in six states.
