Cancer Plan Engagement Survey results released June 2015
  • Who responded?
    • 191 people responded, representing nearly every county in the state, nonprofits, hospitals, universities advocates and survivors. 
  • Key Findings:
    • 62% believe CDPHE should facilitate the implementation of the Colorado Cancer Plan.
    • Respondents reported the need to communicate the cancer plan’s relevance to the work they do; buy-in depends on how well the plan meets individual’s professional needs.
    • Communication and outreach are important to help people understand what is in the plan, what progress is being made. 
    • 54% indicated that workgroups should be organized along the cancer continuum of care (prevention, screening, etc.), however many felt strongly that the site-specific focus (breast cancer, colorectal cancer, etc.) should not be lost.
