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. The site is designed to provide program planners and public health practitioners with 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. Currently, there are over 165 programs available on the RTIPs website across a range of health topics (e.g., tobacco control, HPV vaccination, cancer screening, survivorship/supportive care), delivery settings (e.g., community- and faith-based organizations, schools, clinical settings), and target populations (e.g., adolescents, adults, Blacks or African Americans, Hispanics or Latinos, Asians, Whites).
- IS Team Role: The IS team leads the RTIPs multi-phase process. Specifically, members of the IS team work with a contractor to identify prospective programs and, if the program meets the RTIPs eligibility criteria, the principal investigator of the study is invited to submit their program materials. Once received, the program is rated on three criteria: research integrity, intervention impact, and dissemination capability. Programs are also assessed based on the RE-AIM Scoring Instrument. Once reviewed, the program is posted to the RTIPs website and associated materials are made available for use.
