About the GW Cancer Center Technical Assistance Portal

The George Washington University (GW) Cancer Center’s Cancer Control Technical Assistance Portal (TAP) was created in response to a need voiced by cancer control professionals for a centralized website that pulls together technical assistance and training (TAT) resources. The GW Cancer Control TAP does just that through the Resource Repository, where users can search for and access Comprehensive Cancer Control (CCC) resources produced not only by the GW Cancer Center but also by the National Comprehensive Cancer Control Program (NCCCP)-funded programs, cancer control coalitions, CCC national partners, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)-funded national networks, and other stakeholders. Users can sign up for and access archives of the Cancer Control Technical Assistance Periodical, a monthly e-Newsletter that highlights new webinars, trainings, events, resources and funding opportunities. This website also houses webinars and Online Learning modules produced by the GW Cancer Center so users can access them 24/7. The website also features an Events Calendar for all upcoming and past events by the GW Cancer Center and other cancer-related organizations.

About Comprehensive Cancer Control

Comprehensive Cancer Control (CCC) is an integrated and coordinated approach to reducing cancer incidence, morbidity, and mortality through prevention, early detection, treatment and survivorship. Through the CCC program, communities and partner organizations pool their resources to reduce the burden of cancer through Policy, Systems, Environmental (PSE) and health equity approaches. The CCC program is funded by CDC and exists in all 50 states, Washington, D.C., eight tribes and tribal organizations, and seven U.S. territories and Pacific Islands Jurisdictions.  

About the Project

The GW Cancer Center was awarded a 5-year cooperative agreement to work with CDC to design and implement comprehensive, high-quality TAT to CCC programs and their partners to implement cancer control activities. We conducted a needs assessment in collaboration with the American Cancer Society that informed our TAT approach and related project period objectives summarized below:

The most recent Year 01 Evaluation Report provides a brief summary of progress and activities to date as well as future directions for TA and evaluation. Previous evaluation reports are available on our Publications page.
