Service Description

North Carolina Comprehensive Cancer works to reduce the incidence and mortality of cancers by the development and implementation of effective strategies to prevent, detect, and promote activities that enhance comprehensive initiatives.  Comprehensive cancer initiatives are a process by which resources are pooled via partnerships, collaboratives, and individual groups and institutions to reduce the burden of cancer.  Comprehensive Cancer does not provide direct patient services.

Through the comprehensive cancer initiatives process work is done to:

-Reduce cancer risk

-Detect cancer earlier

-Improve cancer treatment

-Enhance quality of life for cancer survivors beginning at time of diagnosis

Primary activities include:

-Provide support and guidance to the North Carolina Advisory Committee on Cancer Coordination and Control (Advisory Committee).  The Advisory Committee is legislatively mandated to prepare and oversee the implementation of the North Carolina Cancer Plan.

-Promote partnerships and collaboration with agencies, health facilities, and educational institutions to actively work toward the goals and objectives of the North Carolina Cancer Plan.

-Collaborate with communities to foster cancer control awareness through regional groups, coalitions, and partnerships.

-Provide public and professional education opportunities for prevention and early detection.
