Abstract

In the early 1990 s, a new movement emerged across the country to improve the way organizations coordinate and collaborate in the fight against cancer. Central to this movement is the development and implementation of a strategic plan, called a comprehensive cancer control (CCC) plan. Currently, sixty-nine plans exist among US states, tribes or tribal organizations, territories and Pacific Island Jurisdictions. The majority of CCC plans cover a five-year timeframe; typically in the fifth year, a plan update or plan revision process begins. Although many plans have common components, different processes have been utilized by various programs to update plans. This article describes the process used by Kentucky, Michigan and Wyoming to update and revise their CCC plans. Common key factors for successful cancer plan revision and implementation will be described based on experiences shared by the three states.
