Developed by NCI’s Implementation Science team, these tools and platforms serve to aid in the furthering of D&I research while incorporating cancer control planning and evidenced-based outcomes into research. These tools allow public health professionals and investigators to deepen their understanding of D&I methods, build connections via our virtual community of practice, and draw from data available in the form of reports, state plans, interactive maps, and more.

  • The Research-tested Intervention Programs (RTIPs) website is one of the evidence-based resource tools on the Cancer Control P.L.A.N.E.T. portal. The RTIPs website is a searchable database of cancer control interventions and related program materials and it is designed to provide program planners and public health practitioners easy and immediate access to research-tested materials. Sponsored by the National Cancer Institute (NCI) RTIPs provides a review of programs available for use in a community or clinical setting.

  • Research to Reality (R2R) is an online community of practice that links cancer control practitioners and researchers. R2R provides opportunities for discussion, learning and enhanced collaboration around moving research into practice.

  • The Cancer Trends Progress Report summarizes our nation's progress against cancer in relation to Healthy People targets set forth by the Department of Health and Human Services. The report includes key measures of progress along the cancer control continuum and uses national trend data to illustrate where advances have been made.

  • The Dissemination and Implementation (D&I) Measures and Methods initiative was launched in March 2012. Its purpose is to bring together an international community of researchers and practitioners to create a growing and evolving resource for standardized, vetted D&I measures that can (1) lead to comparable datasets; and (2) facilitate collaboration and comparison across disciplines and regions.
My Own Health Report (MOHR)
  • The My Own Health Report (MOHR) project, funded by the NCI, AHRQ, and the NIH Office of Behavioral and Social Sciences Research, is an effort to collaboratively design, implement and rapidly evaluate a flexible, pragmatic intervention employing a patient reported data system to be used by patients/ providers in jointly developing patient-oriented health plans.  With the collaboration of six academic teams, the MOHR tool is being evaluated in nine practice sites with nine delayed intervention comparison sites.
State Cancer Profiles
  • The State Cancer Profiles website provides dynamic views of cancer statistics for prioritizing cancer control efforts in the nation, states, and local levels. The objective of the State Cancer Profiles Web site is to provide a system to characterize the cancer burden in a standardized manner in order to motivate action, integrate surveillance into cancer control planning, characterize areas and demographic groups, and expose health disparities. The focus is on cancer sites for which there are evidence based control interventions. Interactive graphics and maps provide visual support for deciding where to focus cancer control efforts.
