    EPACE Training Videos on NCCDPHP's 4 Domains

    CDC/NCCDPHP worked with Emory University to develop two interactive trainings on NCCDPHP’s 4 Domains. EPACE trainings are online, web-facilitated training sessions that incorporate all of the components and benefits of in-person training. These trainings use the latest in virtual media and social networking to provide a powerful learning and networking experience delivered by Emory University’s Centers For Training and Technical Assistance, in conjunction with CDC staff. Audience:  The primary audience are people who are unfamiliar with this work and so the training might be perfect for those of you who are developing an orientation or introductory session for new staff or community partners.

    Equity Assessment Framework for Public Health Law and Policies

    The Equity Assessment Framework provides a way to assess the equity implications of existing or proposed laws or policies. It can assist in identifying issues in the drafting, design, or implementation of a law or policy that could have a disproportionate impact on different population groups. The framework is meant to guide a discussion around how equity is considered in both process and outcomes, and can help identify opportunities for improvement.

    Fostering Mentorship to Advance Cancer Control: A Case of Promoting HPV Vaccinations to Parents and Clinicians

    The George Washington University (GW) Cancer Center developed the Mentorship Program, modeled after a successful pilot program at National Cancer Institute, to provide tailored technical assistance on health communication and foster mentored relationships between comprehensive cancer control (CCC) professionals. The webinar featured a mentee who provided an overview of her Mentorship Program-supported health communication project promoting HPV vaccinations to clinicians and parents in New Jersey. 

    The intended audience of the webinar was CCC professionals interested in mentoring relationships and learning about a CCC-led communication campaign promoting HPV vaccinations to parents and clinicians.

    Learning Objectives:

    1. Identify Mentorship Program inputs, activities, outputs and outcomes
    2. Describe how mentorship advanced a health communication campaign designed to promote human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccines to parents and clinicians
    3. Explain the benefits and challenges of mentorship to advance comprehensive cancer control efforts
    Four Domains of Chronic Disease and Disease Prevention

    CDC's National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion (NCCDPHP) is working to coordinate its efforts in four key areas or domains: 1) epidemiology and surveillance, 2) environmental approaches, 3) health system strategies and 4) community-clinical links. 

    Guide for Measuring Alcohol Outlet Density

    CDC developed this guide to help public health practitioners measure alcohol outlet density (the number and concentration of retail alcohol outlets in a defined geographic area) at the state and local levels. This guide discusses the importance of measuring alcohol outlet density, a key risk factor for excessive drinking, and different approaches for doing so, along with their strengths and limitations.

    Guiding Cancer Control: A Path to Transformation

    Throughout history, perhaps no other disease has generated the level of social, scientific, and political discourse or has had the degree of cultural significance as cancer. A collective in the truest sense of the word, "cancer" is a clustering of different diseases that afflict individuals in different ways. Its burdens are equally broad and diverse, from the physical, financial, and psychological tolls it imposes on individuals to the costs it inflicts upon the nation’s clinical care and public health systems, and despite decades of concerted efforts often referred to as the "war on cancer", those costs have only continued to grow over time. The causes and effects of cancer are complex—in part preventable and treatable, but also in part unknown, and perhaps even unknowable.

    Guiding Cancer Control defines the key principles, attributes, methods, and tools needed to achieve the goal of implementing an effective national cancer control plan. This report describes the current structure of cancer control from a local to global scale, identifies necessary goals for the system, and formulates the path towards integrated disease control systems and a cancer-free future. This framework is a crucial step in establishing an effective, efficient, and accountable system for controlling cancer and other diseases.

    Guiding Cancer Control: A Path to Transformation

    Cancer control efforts in the United States are particularly complex, involving more than a dozen federal agencies, 65 states and territories, and many private organizations, both nonprofit organizations and forprofit companies. Currently there is no uniform way of coordinating the efforts and priorities of these diverse stakeholders.

    The National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine, with support from the American Cancer Society, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and the National Cancer Institute, convened a committee to develop a national strategy for cancer control. The resulting consensus report, Guiding Cancer Control: A Path to Transformation, presents the committee’s strategic vision and its recommendations defining the key principles, attributes, methods, and tools needed to achieve the goal of implementing an effective national cancer control plan.

    Health center board self-assessment tool: Culture and language access

    The purpose of this tool is to help the Board of Directors and health center leadership assess areas of strength and potential growth in supporting culturally and linguistically appropriate services at the health center. This assessment uses the National Standards for Culturally and Linguistically Appropriate Services in Health and Health Care (CLAS Standards) as a framework.
