Abstract

This paper describes the Institute of Medicine's (IOM's) eight-year experiment in examining cancer policy issues through the National Cancer Policy Board and more recently through the early phases of the National Cancer Policy Forum. Both were primarily funded by the National Cancer Institute and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The forum identifies and explores issues but, unlike the board, does not author IOM advisory reports. We report on the events that led to the establishment of these activities and discuss the factors that could lead to success in influencing policy, using examples of actual reports and effects on public- and private-sector programs and policies.
